    (geologist/paleontologist) helped to the podium at center stage and, while standing, deliver a paper covering his then-current research, accepted for presentation through the normal channels, to hundreds of people, at about age 90. But, sheesh, Laurence, there's just not enough Geritol in the world for most people to be able to do that. Also, the news that he may start a small institute actually suggests less rather than more research of his own unless he turns over the operation to someone else right away. I've known several scientists who've been successful at that, but it sucks up a lot of energy, almost like running a small business. Nevertheless, I hope I'm wrong and you're right.
