Poverty in America

If you read one thing this week, make sure it is NBC's web based report on the Geography of Poverty: A journey through forgotten America in America. I haven't glimpsed anything as noticeable since thumbing through an old copy of Michael Harrington's "The Other America" in college (a book still too painful for a former poor kid like me to go through with any depth).

One look and you'll understand a bit more why 'Make America Great Again' appeals to people beyond even reason.
