More insight than you'd expect from this kind of anthology. ( )

The one essay I related to most was written by the red-sneakered Keillor of Prairie Home Companion fame. You can always count on a Minnesotan to cut through all the perkiness.

Keillor's advice: Be a grouch.

"There's a new survey out saying that people who take a positive view of aging actually live longer than those who grouse and grumble, which is hogwash and I am paying no attention to it," Keillor writes. "I turned 60 last week and it's no picnic, and anybody who says so is whistling in the dark. Maybe this doesn't sound life-affirming to you. So—shoot me."
