      My eldest granddaughter, when she was preteen (now she's a grandma), during a dining room conversation in which one of the adults at the table mentioned "official unemployment," asked, "Sabba, how did all the officials get unemployed?"  

      The wisdom of my forebears ... Two wise people will never agree. Man begins in dust and ends in dust — meanwhile it's good to drink some vodka. A man studies until he's seventy and dies a fool.
