So I’m sitting here watching the Daily Show, and I’m beginning to think that I’m completely oblivious to the way most of my countrymen live. 3 out of the 4 commercials in the last break referenced tough times and high gas prices. Are the marketing machines skewing the facts again or am I just out of touch? I’m not in an ideal place, but I am hardly hurting. (The first sentence of this post reveals that my cable bill is being paid.) I guess I should know by now that the media takes about a clear picture of the nation as a whole as a camera coated in vaseline.
I just want to know how my fellow man is actually doing. If I don’t know, none of us can find a solution.
