Bill Maher on Ageism in America

When was the last time you heard a talk show host tell his audience “Ageism is the last acceptable prejudice in America”? 

Those were Bill Maher’s words on HBO’s “Real Time” as he launched into a six-minute diatribe about our national obsession with youth (and arse) and lack of regard for the value that age can bring.

Maher made these comments last November. I just saw the clip and wanted to share it without further comment.
