the Leading Cause 12 lines

"What is the Leading
cause of Death, Doctor?"
"...Pardon me?"
"100% of people born, Die. 
As yet, we have no cure."
"...As Yet? What are you saying?"
"The average ancient Roman 
didn't make it past 35."
"Today, we can live 
past 100."
"We're making progress."

this is to be added to my pithy list of clever ripostes to life. ranks just behind my fav 2: "no one gets out alive" and "I'll sleep when I'm dead" can now be added, "we're making progress"
