    debate over anecdotal evidence that is necessarily incomplete, but one of the serious problems as regards economic justice in this country is that even "real" jobs (as opposed to "McJobs") often pay ludicrously low wages, especially if health care contributions are taken into account -- and they're often expected to work 50 to 60 hours per week (being "exempt" salaried employees), forgo much of the paid time-off to which they are supposedly entitled by their compensation package, and so on. Try to put together a realistic budget for someone earning 30K per year.

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.
