I was thumbing through the alumni notes for my undergraduate alma mater and saw something unusual. The alumni notes are not the first thing I read--in fact, this edition is dated "Fall 2008." But one of the first items, in the section for graduates of the 1930s, was this:
David Twombley FA'36, GR'68, Urbandale, IA, is now retired.
Holy hell I hope so! It's only been 72 years since he got his bachelor's degree! Is this what we, the Social-Security-paying-into generation, have to look forward to?
