To the editor:
Let’s get one thing straight: Social Security is insurance. The overwhelming majority of working Americans pay for it. It is a self-financed program and does not increase the deficit, so don’t cut its benefits for deficit reduction.

Fracture Prevention CENTRAL Launches
OWL members know about the perils of bone fractures; breaking a hip is one of the most feared accidents for older women.
Over the years, OWL has participated in education programs about osteoporosis. More recently, we have joined with other organizations as part of the National Bone Health Alliance, which brings together researchers, service providers, manufacturers and educators to work together to prevent second fractures. I have represented OWL in this group, and want you all to know about the most recent initiative.
