Some good news re remaining stranded evacuees in Kabul
(I assume this is the flight announced, but not confirmed departed, here)

Suppose you are quite old, but want to appear young. Is it better to:

a) move in a sprightly manner and occasionally fall over

or

b) move carefully and never fall over?

Asking for a friend/President.

Comparing the popular image of the most and least athletic presidents in the post FDR era (we’ll give him a pass on account of childhood polio), I’d have to go with b). Gerald Ford, an outstanding college football player, who turned down a professional career to become a college football and boxing coach, and later (as president) was a serious swimmer, skier and golfer, is remembered as a klutz because of the occasional misstep. Donald Trump, who is inclined to use a golf cart if there is a risk of more than a minute of walking, may be hated and despised for all sorts of obvious reasons, but I don’t think most people have any strong sense of his physical inabilities.
