  This piece will take almost 1 minute to read, or in other words, roughly 7 times longer than your attention span.

 Franklin, the Founder I would most like to have over for dinner, said something to the effect that the older he got the less certain he was of anything.

 Richard Kimball, the person I most trust, has been confused about almost everything around me and all within it, as long as I can remember.  As result: I have always been a listener, sitting quietly, soaking in the monologues of those I once knew certain, knew more than me. 

 But now I am old and have heard an awful lot and must say, I don’t care what you think or what you have to say.

 Like all my age, I am done. As with almost everyone else I have ever known, I am only interested in what age and experience have left ME to prattle about.

 Richard Kimball, Vote Smart Founder
