Came across a review of this book that I think a lot of LJers I know would be interested in:

Strapped: Why America's 20- and 30-Somethings Can't Get Ahead

Review here.

If you think things are hard for you (living with parents, stuck in a low-paying job you hate, stuck with a totally crappy car, etc.) you're not alone.

I've managed to avoid most of this and I think a chief reason is the fact I didn't take out or need any college loans. Thank heaven for academic scholarships. The fact I've never had a car payment helps too.

    *deep breath* Hi people. Sorry for not being around but fortunately it's not because of anything bad. More like because of a lot of good stuff…

    Today's buzz inevitably brings this MadTV skit to mind:

  • In Honor of Sesame Street

    Telly uses a computer, back in 1984: Note that some people -still- this stressed about computers.
