Today… is my Dad's birthday. He would have been 59 years old today, had his ticker not conked out so soon. 59 seemed so old a few years back, but now I realize it's pretty young. Statistically, he should of had a another 13 years based on an 1998 article in The Harvard Gazette. But, again statistically [made with some theoretical assumptions], he's just offsetting someone who is living to be 85.
