March 7, 1961: Paul Coates looks at the problem of a family caring (or not caring) for an ailing parent who is on welfare and a veteran's pension.

He writes: How any society but a degenerating one can mesmerize itself into believing that it's perfectly normal and moral to kick your parents out of your lives when they're no longer functioning at top efficiency, I'm not going to begin to contemplate.

But I can tell you one thing.

That the attitude, in our society, is a growing one.
