Default AARP Mystery solved

Upon calling AARP today and telling them about some issues having, and some issues not having the "River of Dreams - Dreamboats" feature article on page 74 of the March/April issue (yes, the one with Her Majesty Helen Mirren on the cover), I was given some information.

It turns out AARP publishes several different versions of each issue, each version geared to a different age group among their membership. Not only are the articles sometimes different, but so are the ads, puzzles, games, etc. Our issue happens to be in the 60 - 69 age group. I was informed those in the 50 - 59 age group may get different content, as well as those in the 70 - 79 or 80 -89 age groups, etc. I forgot to ask how many age groups they delineate beyond that!

After suggesting they include the steamboats related article in all the issues, the representative I spoke with said she would pass this suggestion along. She also said that the article is accessible online. Before I hung up I told her what a wonderful article it was and that it had convinced me to take a river cruise....
