Question of the day

Our last question asked: According to today's timely story on American flags by Heidi Heilbrunn of the Greenville News, how does one retire flags that have become tattered from use?

As for today's question, here it is: According to FiveThirtyEight's David Goldenberg, why does the oldest person in the world "keep dying?"
