So a rich guy and a homeless guy walk into a bar . . .
Sorry, let me start over.
So a rich guy and a homeless guy walk into a dumpster . . .
One more time. A rich guy and a homeless guy walk into The Washington Post . . .
America is officially a “Tale of Two Cities,” as New York Mayor Bill de Blasio says.
The grand canyon between extreme wealth and abject poverty has grown so wide and deep that we have lost all perspective. We have become indifferent and uncaring.
It’s common for the rich, especially, to believe that poor people choose to be poor. The rich imagine the poor are HAPPY.
Of course you want to be happy in 2014! Doesn’t everybody?
Let me save you some time and eyestrain. Don’t bother reading the “happiness” story referred to in the previous post.
I won’t even name the formerly great newspaper. It’s too embarrassing. (Hint: The newspaper’s flag at one time included the words “And Times-Herald.” Jeff Bezos owns the paper now.)
To his credit, the author of the piece, Scott Adams, creator of the comic strip “Dilbert,” is totally, completely honest.
