Neighbors of the Jewish Home for the Aging said Monday they will protest the facility's expansion plans during a public hearing before the Los Angeles Board of Zoning Appeals today.

Hardly anybody lives that long, but Blumenthal, executive director of Jewish Homes for the Aging of Greater Los Angeles in Reseda, is seeing more and more people getting close to it. "And why not?" he asks. "That's what Moses did, and he could see and hear and have sex. He was very healthy."
