    If you could have the job of your choice, currently held by someone else, what job would it be? I would like to be the successor to Charlie Rose, or the US Secretary of State.

    Wow, really? I was just saying recently that it's a good time NOT to be Secretary of State. I wouldn't want the responsibility of making decisions about places like Syria.

    For me, it's not a name that would mean much to most folks, but Anders Winroth. Tenured medieval history professor at Yale, won a Macarthur "genius" grant.

    I'll keep mine. I'm retired, but still work. But I pretty much work when and how I want. I get to be outside and get good exercise. I enjoy what I do and my net income will be better than before. I'm the someone else I didn't get to be before when I had to work like a dog and produce,produce. I don't gloat over it or take it for granted. Hope it continues to work out.

    Drive awesome cars, explain things on TV, do beer commercials, wear whatever horrible shirt I want... perfect.
  15. I dunno about you guys, but I wanna be a young multi-billionaire living in someplace nice like...Aruba. My day job would be scuba diving wherever the heck I wanna and I'd moonlight as a guy who constantly impresses and beds hot tourist chicks.
