How old is Tony Ben­nett anyway?”

We were sit­ting in a condo on a ski hill with friends, count­ing down to the New Year, when the age­less Mr. Ben­nett appeared on TV. One of us won­dered aloud about just how many new years he has per­son­ally ush­ered in.

In days gone by, the ques­tion would have just hung there. We would all offer our guesses but there would be no defin­i­tive res­o­lu­tion of the ques­tion. It would prob­a­bly fill up a few min­utes of con­ver­sa­tion. If some­one felt strongly about the topic, it might even start an argu­ment. But, at the end of it all, there would be no defin­i­tive answer. There would only be opinions.
