Defining Deviancy Downwards: The Beat Rolls On!

An 83 year old woman in Orange County, CA (where else) has elected to get breast implants to "keep up with the kids". A widow of 10 years (13 grandkids and 12 great-grandkids), she is still working as a property manager and "wanted her children to be proud of what she looks like"; clearly, this must be a family of great substance and depth of character. Then again, having been forced to watch a few episodes of "Housewives of Orange County" with a female acquaintance, I can't say that "not-so-great"granny's decision comes as a surprise, given her place of residence.
