Born 1902 in Russia, Max Lerner, American journalist,writer and educator contributed as a columnist for the Los Angeles Times over period of 20 years.
He is quoted as saying: “I want to die young at an advanced age.”
I can relate to that.
He was known as a ‘possibilist’ , one who was considered neither an optimist nor a pessimist.
Max died in 1992 aged 89.
