Rich folks always talk hard times.
Lillian Smith ~ American writer
This sign is all over where I live.
This space is in the lake town about 6 miles from my place, Mound. This has been there about four years and is and has always been vacant.
This apartment building has been boarded for two years. It is also in Saint Bonifacious. It looks like there will be an auction.
We feel it viscerally, the rot that lay beneath the surface. There is a sense of helplessness as the train plows forward. Unless we are in the top one percent, we are all vulnerable and we know it. My relatively affluent community is an example. The rich may talk hard times, but many of the other are feeling the hard times. OK, it's Friday and I'm feeling fretful.
