Sounds like a man with very little stress in his life.  It's been my experience that people who don't allow themselves to get stressed or annoyed live the longest.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Probably has more to do with the lifestyle of privilege that had allowed to eat at upscale restaurants every night than the meals served at those restaurants.

When it's a privilege you've built for yourself ... good.

"Call it payback for the meager meals he ate growing up in Russia, where as a boy, he recalled, he marched with protesters during the Russian Revolution. He and his family fled the pogroms, came through Ellis Island and moved into a railroad apartment on Pitt Street on the Lower East Side. By the time he was 11, young Harry's meals improved to pickled herring sold from barrels on the street, and he worked as a delivery boy for pennies before taking a job at an office supply company."

/The US can't keep stats like this because we can't ask people's religion on the census.

fta "I'm still open to meeting someone," he said, his eyes twinkling as he prepared to order coffee and dessert. "I still have the desire. That's what counts."

Cool. Enjoy, old dude.
