Dancing Ginger-ly

There's a viral e-mail going around with the subject heading "Never Underestimate An Old Broad," which purports to show Ginger Rodgers, the star of so many Hollywood musicals with Fred Astaire many decades ago, doing a salsa routine recently at age 92 with her 29 year old great-grandson. Unfortunately, that's impossible, since she died in 1995 at age 83. According to Snopes, the woman is actually 75-year-old Sarah Jones, and the guy is her 35-year-old dance instructor. It's still inspirational, though...
