    what homeless lady needs most is... a car?

    so, i'm watching the BBC news last night. They had a segment about people living out near the LA airport in a bunch of tents because they lost their houses in the sub-prime debacle. that's sad enough, of course, but they interviewed one lady who was trying to find work. they asked her what her plan was and she said she needed to work so she could get a car.

    i was like, WTF? then i remembered that this is america and specifically los angeles. then it suddenly all made sense.

    "Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it." --Ellen Degeneres
