The Way We Live Now

I've got, $2.18 in the bank, a pile of dirty towels and no laundry quarters, and $18 in food stamps until the 8th of February.

It's more than a dollar a day, so not exactly 3rd world, yet. Of course we've "turned the corner" and everything is sunshine and rainbows and ponies for everyone willing to "compete" for them.

Perhaps us poor folks would be better off if the government just threw stacks of cash into an arena and had us death battle each other over ones and fives.
