Meanwhile, the aged don't want to age. In Florida they are now having "Botox Parties." The thought of a bunch of old people gathering on a Friday afternoon to have poison injected into their face so that they have a few less wrinkles is sickening to me--not to mention that people who have face lifts etc. generally look like freaks. Read about it in the Tampa Tribune today:

``Botox Party! May 20'' reads the marquee of Guggino Family Eye Center on south Tampa's Swann Avenue.

The group Botox experience - in which friends gather for company, refreshment and little Botox shots around the eyes to erase brow furrows - has swept from California to Florida.
