I mean John Scalzi on Being Poor, and it's recommended (but heavy) fare.

Kudos to him (whose Old Man's War is certainly on my to-read list), and to all the people who put in their two or three extra points. A "Cathartic" exercise, as one of them said. Indeed.

And gratitude + all good karma to my parents, who worked hard so that my two sisters and I never experienced more than a select few of the hardships on that list.

But one remembers, just like lots of the "having {been|grown up} poor" contributors to John's post have remembered.
