Re: SS & Pension as part of "cash cushion&q

I work 16 hours a day on investing, so that area should not concern you.

In all seriousness, I would worry a lot about that. Not conducive to a well-rounded life or good health.

Social issues like poverty are best solved by charity...

No, they're not. As much as you (or I) might wish it were so, they're not. Even the charities will tell you that -- and have, many times.

Re: Connecting MBP to HDTV

I'm not aware of any TV that has a Mini DisplayPort. So you'll need an adapter of some kind.
