Larry is an older folk who refuses to retire and won’t quit trying to contribute. His family has labeled him a curmudgeon but, hey, everyone knows that only young people are hopeful. Like most older folk, Larry believes that nothing much will change: petrol companies will still make billions; AT&T will continue to take over the World; Wal-Mart will still sell cheap plastic products for a bundle; And, 56 million of us older folk will go to sleep every night secure in the fact that Congress will try to figure out how to cut more money out of the Social Security fund to spend on pork belly projects.
