BLONDE GOES BACK TO WORK AFTER 30 YEARS
I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. (And she appears to be brunette, actually.) But it’s just four seconds.

BAD NEWS / GOOD NEWS
The bad news is that the next 10 or 20 years are likely to be tough for the economy, just as the 10 or 20 following Vietnam were. Only worse, because we have less wiggle room.
The good news is that in many ways the future remains bright. Yes, on average, the car you drive and the house you live in will be smaller – but both will be safer and more energy efficient; the car will park itself if you ask it to, and the house will respond to your commands. You’ll say, “Turn down the lights a little,” and the lights will dim . . . you’ll say, “Show me the Seinfeld where George goes on a date with Marisa Tomei,” and up it will come.
Luxuries that involve physical resources or energy will be harder to afford (50 years from now, energy may be all but free), but tech-driven marvels should become ever more accessible. And did I mention that we may live forever? Yes I did – and surprisingly few of you seem interested. But okay, what about this: Remaining in good health into your 90s – playing tennis at 90 – and then, eventually, when you do go, going quietly in your sleep. Does that grab you? Did you watch it on “60 Minutes” Sunday?
Quote of the Day
In 1992, more was spent on legal fees in California [$16.3 billion] than on auto repairs, funerals, tanning salons, one-hour photo finishing, videotape rentals, detectives and armored car guards, bug exterminators, laundry, haircuts, day care, shoe repairs and septic tank cleaning combined.~Census Bureau survey, as reported in the LA Times
