Social Insecurity

Generation Debt: The New Economics of Being Young: Social Insecurity by Anya Kamenetz

I've said it before, I'll say it again. Anya Kamenetz rocks my world.

I sent her a fan letter at the Village Voice, but she probably gets millions.

Read it. Then read the other Generation Debt articles she's written. Think seriously about our country, about your life, your job, and your family.

I have always hated the "every man for himself" way of going through life, but America seems to be more and more headed that way. All the things that people used to rely on (social security, jobs, etc.) are vanishing. It's scary.

I'm working on getting out of debt, scraping by as I do it, and, most importantly of all, letting my creative juices flow freely as I work though all this. The most important thing of all.

More essays Monday. Have a great weekend everybody.

See some of you at Therapy tomorrow night!
