Retire During Retirement

ABC News' Charles Gibson: You're only 62. Is there one more thing you really want to achieve?

Guy a bit older than me with whom I share a birthday and who is about lose the job he's had for last 8 years: Um, that's interesting question... Wouldn't it be interesting for baby boomers not to retire in, y'know, nice places, but to retire during their retirement to go, y'know, help people deal with malaria or AIDS? ... In other words, I'm not suggesting that is what I'm gonna do. It is the kind of thing that intrigues me.

Nice thought but it won't happen.
People are too selfish.

Not all people, though ...

I've heard Jimmy Carter described as the best ex-president we've had, and I tend to agree, having done some of that house-building stuff myself.
