My dear friend, Margaret Wolf, will be 100 years old today (Wednesday). She is about to catch up with me. We spent a lot of time together when we were young. Her daughter and my daughter still are good friends. Happy birthday, Margaret! I have a suggestion for our congressmen. For years, they have been receiving huge salaries and a lot of perks. What if they contributed some of their salaries to the government in this time of need? It would make us admire them and vote for them when the time comes.
