 Bad Predictions
"I recently sold our New York City apartment and bought a house in a small town in New Mexico…I've often joked that I expect New York to resemble Beirut if even a subset of the Y2K infrastructure problems actually materialize - but it's really not a joke...Y2K is so worrisome, in my opinion, that I'll make sure my family isn't there when the clock rolls over to Jan 1, 2000."

 Entertainment Trivia
Ragtime music was tremendously popular, and it flourished for more than 20 years. When the music publishing industry, called "Tin Pan Alley," began selling rags in the late 1800's, the music was too complicated for the average pianist to play. Sheet music had to be considerably simplified for sales. Ragtime musicians often earned substantial income by teaching the ragtime style.
