Look! Poor people again!

It’s like all y’all have been clapping your hands real hard, and now we’re visible! I kind of feel like the Who, when Horton first heard it.

From the NYT; The New Resentment of the Poor

Okay, it’s a lot of belaboring the obvious. But it’s being said out loud, at the paper of record. I’m stunned.

    I’m profoundly impressed. Surely the Lord is in this place.
