Hard Times

What the economic recession means to those who were poor to begin with:

At the beginning of this economic obsession my mother came into my room, leaned on the door frame with a rag in hand and said, while dazed towards my television screen, “you know, this recession is terrible and all but it’s no fucking different than how I’m used to living.” And it was true, it’s not.

I’m not sorry that your family can’t take their annual vacation to a tropical resort.
