Old Man C-Dawg is gloom and doom. Casey is an optimist and a dreamer. Which worldview will reign supreme?

    George Clooney is 54 he is old. Go watch some of your own childhood films and then look up how old the actors playing the ‘old man’ were when they filmed it.

    Ah the joy of being closer to the ‘old man’ character in age than to the protagonist.
