The I Want To Retire Editor:  Can I retire now, LL ?  I’m in my thirties.

The Older Cat:  No, currently you can get partial benefits at 62.  At least you know your age.  Amigo won’t tell me what number life I am on.  I remember Mr. Possum took one and a 30 foot tree another, so I must be on number three.  The next link is about SS reports.

From day one the rich should have been taxed on their complete income.  Currently taxes stop at about $163,000.  The rich could afford the extra taxes since they are rich.  Congress knows on which side their bread is buttered.  Here is some SS info.

Congress has borrowed all of the SS Trust Fund.  Not a penny is actually in it.  It’s included in the 31 TRILLION NATIONAL DEBT.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Young Star Cluster NGC 346
Image Credit: ScienceNASA, ESA, CSA, Olivia C. Jones (UK ATC), Guido De Marchi (ESTEC), Margaret Meixner (USRA)

Explanation: The most massive young star cluster in the Small Magellanic Cloud is NGC 346, embedded in our small satellite galaxy’s largest star forming region some 210,000 light-years distant. Of course the massive stars of NGC 346 are short lived, but very energetic. Their winds and radiation sculpt the edges of the region’s dusty molecular cloud triggering star-formation within. The star forming region also appears to contain a large population of infant stars. A mere 3 to 5 million years old and not yet burning hydrogen in their cores, the infant stars are strewn about the embedded star cluster. This spectacular infrared view of NGC 346 is from the James Webb Space Telescope’s NIRcam. Emission from atomic hydrogen ionized by the massive stars’ energetic radiation as well as and molecular hydrogen and dust in the star-forming molecular cloud is detailed in pink and orange hues. Webb’s sharp image of the young star-forming region spans 240 light-years at the distance of the Small Magellanic Cloud.
