Is America ready for more "old" men? That's the discussion that's taking place in Room for Debate over on NYTimes.com. As the number of men over 65 has increased by 21 percent in the last decade "what are the implications - the benefits and the costs - of having more men around longer?" Women generally outlive men, so how would our lives change with more older men in the country? Will you have to support both parents instead of one? Or would they take care of each other - living longer, healthier, happier lives? Will having more men around keep the seniors dating pool fresh? In other words, will older people "step up their game?" Looks like it.
