Morning AARP: "Nothing Will Ever Compare"

"Every once in a while," he tells the boy, "you find someone who's iridescent. And when you do, nothing will ever compare."
That's my favorite moment from the new Rob Reiner film, Flipped. For your Monday pick-me-up: watch this little preview.
Morning news: FDA may pull approval of breast cancer drug Avastin over concern that its benefits don't outweigh the risks; China will top Japan this year as world's largest economy. And in a story that's near and dear to my own heart: Ethiopian immigrants find their own version of the American dream in Washington, DC.
One last thing: Our EVP of policy, John Rother, made an appearance on FOX Business to talk Social Security last week. The quote you want to remember: "We have a moral obligation to younger people as well as older people to keep the system sound, to keep the cash flow solid, to make sure we don't have this kind of projected solvency issue." We have members (and supportive younger future members!) across the country sending us pictures of the reasons they personally want Social Security to stay strong. Send us yours!
And with that... Happy Monday. Keep cool and dry in the summer heat and summer storms.
