Dec. 31, 1960: It's unwise to quarrel with the economists because they speak with such assurance they seem to know what they're talking about. But they keep insisting on the necessity of increasing something they call the Gross National Product. I'm not sure what it is, but I wish they would hold it still long enough so we could find out. I think it's another way of saying inflation, Matt Weinstock says.

Paul Coates has another first-person plea from beyond the grave for safe driving. This one is attributed to  Irene Thornton of Los Angeles.
