According to my doctor & medical reports (no problems & no medications to 
take), I shall probably live well into my 90s.  I’ll be 78 this coming October

think I'll live longer :)

Al Qaeda has also struggled to respond to the Arab Spring. In Egypt, Libya, and 
Tunisia, Islamists have rejected al Qaeda’s model of autocratic governance 
through sharia law in favor of parliamentary politics. Even many of al Qaeda’s 
theological fellow travelers, such as the ultraconservative Salafis in Egypt, 
have embraced the democratic process and formed political parties to compete in
