I was listening to the radio while they were talking about the different memorial services held to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. They mentioned that he would be 78 yrs old if he hadn't been killed. Got me to wondering ...... how long does someone have to be deceased before they stop telling you how old that person would be had they not died?
I was at the Washington Monument on George Washington's birthday last year and they didn't mention that George Washington would have been 274 if he hadn't died. That leads me to believe there is some unspoken cut off.
So this has been a topic of discussion around here. Some people think 90 should be it. Others 80. What do you think?
