Ninety-six today


Happy Birthday John Kenneth Galbraith, former advisor to Presidents F D Roosevelt and J F Kennedy, and the most widely read economist in the world.

He needs a stair lift and is hard of hearing, but is otherwise in fighting form and the new book he is working on is going well.

A journalist who visited him the other day was presented with a car bumper sticker with a picture of George Bush and the slogan ‘Some things were never meant to be recycled’.
