Tune in, turn on and drop dead!

Memo to Baby Boomers: An Apple a day might keep the doctor away, but your iPod might send you to the emergency room. On Thursday, a 17-year-old Michigan high school student named Jay Thaker presented a paper on iPod and pacemaker interference to the 2007 annual meeting of the Heart Rhythm Society in Denver, Colorado. His study concluded that iPods caused various types of interference in pacemakers in 50 percent of the patients tested.

You write great headlines.

I'm glad they are real big and bold too, so I can find a lens in my trifocals to read it.

Boy if you whippersnappers ever figure out that we fogeys can't read
little bitty fonts, we're done for.

What??? I guess boomers can't write either. We all know they can't lead, that's a given.
