After Retiring, Bored into Working

David Thompson didn't want to just sit around in retirement. A fan of NASCAR since he was a kid, the 66-year-old now shares his knowledge and passion for the sport with others as a part-timer at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Thompson is one of many once-retired Americans who have decided to head back to work because they enjoy it -- they say they want to feel useful and have something to do.
