That Depressing Bag of Bills

One of the more trying aspects of the current economic malaise is the subtle way it has stripped too many of us of our pride and sense of accomplishment with how we have conducted our lives. The 90% of Americans who still have jobs don’t remotely understand the degree to which those who are out of work have been made to feel helpless. If you are a striver who has done well in life until now, you are quite ill equipped to deal with your present situation. It’s likely you have been caught up by global events more than you have underperformed at your job and you don’t deserve to have lost your income stream.  It’s clear to me that those still working cannot imagine your anguish.
