1899 - That's the year the world's two oldest people were born. Susannah Mushatt Jones of Brooklyn and Emma Morano of Italy are believed to be the last with 19th-century birth dates -- 116 years ago. Amazing. The arc of their lives spans incredible technological change and dramatic world events. Consider this: Each was already a teenager when World War I began. Morano's small town of Verbania overlooks Lake Maggiore. Jones, whose one-bedroom apartment is in public housing, has a birthday Monday. Wish them well.
