SHOULD the very aged be able to drive? Otto Jensen was killed by a car on Olive Avenue, Burbank, Calif. Otto was 101. The driver, Mary Beaumont, is 91. A friend of Otto’s tells the AP: “I believe the man could have gone to 105, at least.”

Otto smoked two cigars a day and loved the ladies.

One other witness makes a stand-out comment. Norman Sutcliffe says a woman says she’d seen Jensen “jogging” across the street. He adds:

“A couple of times I’d see cars fly by so fast … I’d think ‘What is this: Pomona? Do they think this is the drag strip?'”

How about that headline, readers: “California 101-year-old jogging smoker killed by 91-year-old drag racer.”

Read all about it…
