Hi, I know this comment is unrelated to the post, but I really enjoyed your article in the WaPo today. I grew up poor with a single mom and I remember many of those moments.
Thank you. I hope all has righted for you and yours.
Hi Darlena, Ditto on the article in the Washington Post. Your situation and hundreds of thousands of similar misfortunes are the reason we need active progressive politics in the US. Without a strong liberal voice in the halls of power to compete with Big Business and the lunatic Right, 2009 will happen again.
Smaller voices do tend to get drowned out, and the desires of large corporations are not in line with that of the middle and lower classes, for sure.
