Has it come to this?
From this morning’s USA Today a few choice quotes:
Some people feel helpless, as if no matter what they do — how hard they work, how many times they write their Congress members — they can’t control their fate (emphasis added).
but then you read this …
Cox says most students lack sympathy for blue-collar autoworkers, an attitude he summarizes as, “You can’t expect to make $65,000 for a job you can learn in a month.”
and you think that maybe it’s not so bad. But the conclusion is scary:
He [12-year old son Michael] shakes his head [indicating that he won’t become an autoworker himself]. “I’m going to run for political office,” he says, decisively. “There’s always going to be a government.”
What it will govern is apparently yet to be determined.
