Question Old guys

We all know that Florida is where all the old folks go but the AARP is now saying 3 states have an older median age than Florida. Those 3 states are Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. What's up with that?

Small populations, weak economies, young folks bolting for other warmer climates and better jobs.

Don't worry, FL still has more old farts than almost anybody in terms of absolute numbers.....and with the Baby Boomers hitting retirement the numbers are gonna be heading up. Demographics will change.
