Quote of the Day
My songwriting is like extending a hand to the listener.

Long-lived persons have one or two lines which extend through the whole hand; short-lived persons have two lines not extending through the whole hand.
Civilization advances by extending the number of important operations which we can perform without thinking of them.
Alfred North Whitehead

The 1935 Social Security Act established 65 as the age of eligibility for payouts. But welfare state politics quickly becomes a bidding war, enriching the menu of benefits, so in 1956 Congress entitled women to collect benefits at 62, extending the entitlement to men in 1961.
