    Hence crime as the choice in the decision tree of life

    The Bonilla contract seemed like a good idea at the time. The Wilpons took the money that they were deferring and invested it with Madoff. The money they were making with Madoff outweighed the interest they were paying Bonilla. But then all good things must come to an end.

    ...you have trouble thinking because you're not wearing your glasses.

    ...most pains are forgetable because there's always another one to take its place.

    My mom's grandparents were born in the 1860's.

    That can make you feel old.

    A little bit of a different take on this. I used to collect baseball cards and I remember Ken Griffey Jr being the 1st player I saw whos birthday was after mine. Forever all the major leaguers were older than me.

    My great grandmother was born in 1882. I remember her well from my youth and when when she died in 1979 I remember thinking she'd lived in Westwood with gas lights and an outhouse as a child and had lived through the development of publicly available electricity and plumbing, the transition from horses to automobiles, from trains to planes, two world wars, a pandemic, the inventions of the telephone, radio and television and watched a man land on the moon live. I wonder if any generation could have lived through more impactful technological achievements?
