    Methinks, McGuinness would be better off jobless or becoming his own boss. I'll admit I came here because of the similarity in name. It's possible that somewhere in history my ancestors were McGuinness' and the name got shortened somehow. Regardless I'm glad to have read it; it was quite thought provoking.
