Now I've Done It

I have to go read Nickel and Dimed On (Not) Getting By in America. Here's why. I don't think/feel I can make an effective argument until I have, and, believe me, I want to be effective.

Just grabbed it offa Brian's bookshelf.

He ranted about it for quite some time, so I suspect I'll enjoy in that macabre sort of way. And I'll head off the argument that I'm "not making up my own mind" by stating that da spouse and I don't often disagree about matters such as these, having both worked blue/pink collar while being classically educated. And made far less than $14.00 per hour.

Remember these key tips to reading a quality paperback:

  • Paperbacks can still go through windows, so aim for walls or large furniture.
  • Paperbacks can knock small furniture, such as lamps, clocks, and knick knacks, from larger furniture.
  • Cats can dodge, but they really don't understand what they have done to deserve this.

Thank you, and enjoy your Lapham-induced idealistic condescension.
