This week's question: A Florida woman who recently celebrated her 105th birthday has confessed that she has no idea how she reached such an old age, because she spent much of her life partying, drinking, gambling, and smoking. If Helen Granier were to write a book on how to live a long, bad habit–filled life, what could she title it?
