On the Internet, memories are forever.
That is why aging veterans of various careers should write about their lives on blogs, allowing the next generation to benefit from their experiences.
John Downing, a Toronto Sun Day Oner, is doing just that with his Downing's Views blog. His posting on memories and aging is a recommended read.
On the Sun front, there are a lot of vets who should be blogging about their years in the media before old age steals those memories.
