Very true Wayne. I suspect there are many of us who would answer just that
- retired! Or, perhaps "long retired". <G>

A question such as where I see myself in 30 years tells me much about the
interviewer and what they have not noted from my resume. Anyone with 15+
years as a tech writer/manager and 11 years with newspapers isn't going to
be in the work force 30 years hence.
