In this photo provided by the Social Security Administration, Patty Duke, now of Coeur d'Alene, reprises her teen-age roles as TV's Lane cousins to drum up enthusiasm for retiring online. As a teen-ager, Duke played the characters Patty and Cathy Lane from the hit 1960s sitcom "The Patty Duke Show." If you can remember CDA's Patty Duke in the "Patty Duke Show," you're probably deep into your AARP Years and mebbe even Social Security. You can see the video here. And you can read the full press release here.

Question: Which one of Patty Duke's "Lane" twins did you like best?
