For legal reasons, we are not threatening to destroy U.S. government property with our glorious medieval siege engine. But if we wanted to, we could. But we won’t. But we could.

Well I guess it isn't good news if you are a lobster. But...
When Virginia Oliver started trapping lobster off Maine's rocky coast, World War II was more than a decade in the future, the electronic traffic signal was a recent invention, and few women were harvesting lobsters.

Key points:
Virginia Oliver started catching lobsters with her father when she was eight
She now works with her 78-year-old son in the same waters
Ms Oliver said she had no plans to retire from her job
Now at age 101, she is still doing it.

If you don't want to die the worst thing you can do is retire.

I dunno man.
Worse than jumping off a cliff or running into traffic?
I mean, the bar for "worst" is pretty high.

Touche, I should have been more clear. I meant if you don't want to die of old age.

Yes, progress is being made. It is slow, but it is there. Hopefully we can translate the success in the entertainment sector into success into political success.
