MAYER COLUMN - BROADSIDED IN THE SUPERMARKET
October 9, 1999
Baseball legend Satchel Paige used to warn people never to look back “because something may be gaining on you.” He managed to reach relative old age without complications from cancer, heart disease and other more common killers of his day. He didn’t want to help anything bad pounce on him. I got an inclination of what Satch was talking about one recent Saturday morning when I went to the supermarket. Before I got home, I was fretting a little about the dangers of being caught by the Awesome A (Alzheimer’s) or the Sneaky SD (senile dementia). At one point I was almost terrified about looking over my shoulder. It was scary.
