Pure curiosity...my grandmother (now deceased) was born in 1900.  At or
around 1981-82 when she was getting a bit fuzzy-minded, her doctor said
that she was "too old" to have alzheimers.  Huh?  I didn't know that the
disease precluded people born before a certain year...what did he mean or
was he just incompetent?
