THERE ARE TOO MANY STATES NOWADAYS. PLEASE ELIMINATE THREE: Kobe Bryant, 33, is deemed the leading veteran voice of the USA men's basketball team. Serena Williams, 30, is hailed for winning the ladies' singles and doubles titles in one day, in what observers say should be the twilight of her career. I'm older than all the MLB all stars except one, Chipper Jones. When did "old" get so young? (And why can't I recognize any of the music on the radio anymore?)
