Re: Senior Demographic Ad Report

Still true:  Advertisers don't want 55+ demos.  And even when all the boomers 
reach 55+, advertisers still wont be interested despire larger numbers.  It's 
not numbers that keeps their disinterest intact, its just that older people 
are smarter and generallly do not fall into the traps of dishonesty of some 
advertising.  55+ folks are older & wiser and are not as easily fooled.

 get the message that traditional approaches to 
 advertising and demographics don't work. >>
