Hillel Ticktin says compulsory retirement at 60 or 65 should be abolished (Why I, THES , September 13). I suspect that this seems more attractive to a professor than to a university cleaner. Since Ticktin is professor of Marxist studies, perhaps he has in mind a gradual withering away of the working week so that by 80 full "emeritus" status has been reached.
