170 End of the Year Wrap-Up, December 31, 2003I made a note in April: "Mice who lived in enriched cages with toys and wheels had far more neurons in a key part of the brain than mice in bare cages." So the one with the most toys really does win?
I made a note in August: "Free lance photographers earn 35% less than 18 years ago."
I'm still wondering about Richard Grasso. How many people would refuse a pay package for more than they are worth? He was fired for accepting his $140 million package--it appears.
I made this note in April: In my father's lifetime--there were 12 democracies when he was born and 121 when he died.
