Yesterday, I noted how FDR's administration documented hard times in the 1930s.
Today, as on every trash day, I got another glimpse of what's happening in America today.
Never saw this in my neighborhood six or seven years ago. Now it's a weekly occurrence, usually with multiple visitors on trash day. Scavenging for scrap is a regular occurrence across America.
Say a prayer, if you will, for all those struggling to get by in our fundamentally transformed America. Especially for those who get up each day, and do what they can to support themselves.
