QOTD

Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well- warmed, and well-fed.
Herman Melville

A very interesting essay on being poor is here. Called oddly enough, “Being Poor” and written by John Scalzi. It resonates with me, growing up what most people would consider poor – but what I still considered comfortable.
