What Does The Economic Crisis Mean?

 

It means that I am forced to look straight into the face of a young Boy Scout and apologize that I can’t afford to buy popcorn from him today.  It means his troop might not raise enough money for camping trips or the Boy Scout Jamboree.  It means disappointment, crushed hopes and disbelief in the idea we’ve tried to teach our children – that hard work yields rewards.  I feel really lousy right now.
