A Quote by Richard Russo

Carl was watching "Wake Up, America," whose aerobic hostess, to judge from her face, had to be in her forties.  Her body was pretty remarkable, toned and athletic, but it wasn't a young body, Sully had noticed.  When she danced next to her youthful assistants, she looked merely heroic.  Maybe that was what made Sully sad when he watched her.  The woman seemed to be dancing for her very life, and Sully would have liked to tell her to go slow.
