Marty Powers has succeeded in many things, except one.
"He's a complete and total failure as a retiree," said his wife Pat.
That's why he keeps getting on airplanes to do computer consulting work for pharmaceutical companies. "They have more money than God," he explained. If not for that work, fighting to keep his Harris Hill neighborhood a place where anyone would want to live would probably keep him even busier.
Regardless of whether you agree with his causes, there's something inspirational about a man who has earned the right to sit on the sidelines who chooses instead to fight for what he believes in.
