It fits, I like it. All this talk about the economy has got me thinking about the mindset of the people that grew up in the Great Depression. They had different virtues. Thrift and self-reliance were emphasized. In many ways those virtues became obstacles when times were better, but I think they're interesting, if we're to be heading into a rough few years.
Will we see another generation that never throws anything away, that plants gardens and repairs their own cars, and complains about the wasteful attitude of their children? People are funny, and I mean that in the best way.
