Let's try something different. Instead of all the doom and gloom, try to find something positive. I understand that one person's good news might be depressing to another. eg gay rights. Let's just see where it goes.

I like the idea. I'll be headed to Ohio for a week soon. Columbus to be exact. For work but with a light schedule. Anything interesting to do or see in Columbus in May?

PLC... If you find yourself with a day off, and a car, head west. Located on the East side of Dayton is the Air force museum. About an hour from Columbus. It is nothing short of spectacular.

PLC,, I forgot to mention that it is free. Free parking, free admission. Well, I guess we all pay for it in taxes. And since you bought it, you may as well see it. You can spend a couple of hours, or a couple of days in the place. It's huge!

Happy yes, but the question remains what happens when everyone lives to an average age of 85. My simple answer is to adjust life expectations. Increase retirement to 70. Encourage extended education.
