    and calls for more study.  meanwhile, I want to start with a shared reaction to the wealth hoarders. it's not the income that causes the problem.  it's the self-indulgence and self-congratulation.  if someone has a mansion, that's even okay with me so long as it welcomes guests of all sorts for respite and rescue.  a charitable donation here and there just doesn't cut it.   I say that as a middle/working class dual income household. i am one of the blessed newly hired autoworkers. the temptation to use the new income for self is a temptation to sin.  I can only thank God that I used my underemployment years exposed to Detroit's assortment of challenges and challenged people. that exposure warns me that even the middle class is rich. I am rich! I have more than I need!  alleluia!  wisdom I lack but even unwise giving is better than hoarding.

    sometimes I spend more time reading the comments than the diaries. no offense to diarists: thanks for the launch pad.
