Social Security

I was thinking the other day. Folks are worried about money and the budget and social security and all of that.
I tried to find how much money is in the Social Security Accounts right now but could not find a number.
What if the Social Security folks took all that money and gave everyone the amount they have paid into the system at this time. No interest, no extra, just the raw amount equal to that paid in. That would be it. The System could then close down and we would pay no more into and all the benefits from it would cease.
Would that work?

Catch Up

Things are moving along so very quickly. It seems strange at the pace. One week really flows into the next and while each moment is savored and enjoyed and mostly productive, there seems to be no time between the moments. I look up and the moon is full. I look up again and the moon is a sliver.
