And We Shelby Changed

Specifically, we Shelby working until the day we die, that is, if we can find employment. If I had a job as cushy as that of the ancient and well-fixed Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Hellabama), I'd probably want to advance the retirement age a few years, too, so I could rake in more of those bankers', insurers' and lawyers' contributions. With a personal net worth of between $4 and $10 million, and nothing to do in his job except cover a seat and provide a predictable vote, it's no surprise Shelby, who is only 76, is not going to retire, so he doesn't want anyone else to retire, either. And you know what, he's only the 22nd wealthiest senator. It's so good to see the rich looking out for the rest of us, isn't it? [/snark]
