Our Views: Bombs away, at age 90

At age 75, a parachute jump is pretty darn impressive. Maybe not prudent, but pretty darn impressive (as comedian Dana Carvey might say). But at age 85, and then at 90?

Well, happy birthday to George H.W. Bush, who set an example that many of us will have trouble reaching.

The former president has been an example of derring-do his whole life. For a time in World War II, he was the Navy’s youngest aviator. And now he’s the oldest president to jump out of an airplane — we’re pretty sure.

What we are sure of is that he had a great time.
