Regarding the Feb. 4 Local Digest item “Elderly man found dead in apartment”:

I do not know whether to advise the reporter or The Post’s editors regarding the headline or the first sentence: “An elderly D.C. man was found stabbed to death in his Mount Pleasant apartment Saturday evening, D.C. police said Sunday.” I hardly consider it apt to label a 68-year-old as “elderly.”
