Veteran entertainer Art Linkletter says older people can still get a kick out of life. "I'm 78 and still alive and doing what I want to stay alive and be fulfilled," Linkletter told a seminar for seniors in Las Vegas. He encouraged them to "save your self-esteem and your identity" by staying young emotionally. Linkletter is author of 23 books, including his latest, "Old Age is Not For Sissies." He says everyone needs "something to hope for and something to love." Linkletter, the host of long-running TV shows "House Party" and "People Are Funny," also said taking things easy shouldn't wait until old age. "Live your life so you don't destroy yourself en route."
