Gerontocracy

 

Thanks to Mike Seccombe at the Vineyard Gazette Online  I learned a new word:

Gerontocracy: government by old men.

As the children have grown and my wife and I have done a bit more traveling, I sometimes look in local papers for meetings that sound interesting. It does not matter where I go I find gerontocracy in action. I just didn’t know it had a name.

Now I do.
