thought for the day

"The honest poor can sometimes forget poverty. The honest rich can never forget it."
~G.K. Chesterton, quoted on a site called Class Action, which tackles the consequences of this taboo American division. It seems obvious that former Merrill Lynch CEO John Thain has never even entertained even the vague idea of poor people. When even the New York Times is calling bankers on the carpet for their sense of entitlement, you know it's egregious.

If you read my post today about me trying to refinance my house, you may scream. I wanted to scream at the guy on the phone, but I didn't. It is not his fault. I did write all my reps and the White House.
