JEMAIL: O’Connell, Bill (MC1959) wants me to show my work?

2019-Jan-13

John,

I am interested in how you calculated your estimate that you would have to live to the ripe old age of 132 to “steal back” the Social Security money “stolen” from you. Seems much too long a payback period especially in that you are not adjusting for present value. Please provide your methodology. As to your terminology I think a better term would be “recovering” rather than stealing back. It seems to me impossible to steal something that is yours and I would hope that no one who benefitted from a Manhattan education would consider in engaging in any aspect of stealing, even as you call it, stealing back.

I always look forward to Sunday morning and an second cup of coffee while I enjoy Jasper Jottings. Thanks for your production efforts and please keep JJ coming each week.

Bill O’Connell, ’59

[JR: Unfortunately, I calculated a while ago and don’t have the details any more. “Recovering” rather than “stealing”?  Not sure of the real difference. Once the Gooferment “stole” it  from me, one has to use “self-help” to get what one can back. When the “revolution” starts, I’ll be down to the barricades. Glad you like the Jottings. ]
