With their fingers on the pulse of the baby boomers, today's New York Times offers a special section on how to have a comfortable retirement. Save yourself fifteen laborious minutes by skimming their three main tips:

1. Don't spend a lot of money.

2. Become a partner in a law firm and stick those occasional windfalls in the bank.

3. If you own two motels, one worth at least $650,000, think about selling them and living off the proceeds.

See how simple it is? And you were worried! Thanks to the Times, the Marie Antoinette of newspapers, now we can all sleep at night.
