Interesting story about a guy wh se building is about to meet the wrecking ball. Although his store will close, he will still continue to work. Nice story and video.

          Terrible to see that happen to any small businessperson.  At 100 years old, it's heart breaking.

              What a slacker, the guy is ONLY 37 years older than retirement age for Social Security, or put it another way, when he was 62 todays SS receptients were 25. Damn...

                Granted, Harry was in Hungary at the time (probably), but think about this. He was the 26 years old when the Social Security Program started. Plus he was born before the Federal Income Tax was ratified and he was 60 years old before the start of the Illinois Income Tax. Not working and getting a check from the Government is just not how this guy was raised.
