Poverty in Randoph County and Alabama
I posted today at Captain Plaid my thoughts on a Washington Post opinion piece confronting the fact that incomes for the lower and middle rungs in our society have remained stagnant compared to the elite in these last twenty five years. Wilcox has over 40% poverty and even Shelby has 6.3% with experts like AU history professor expressing confusion that such an evangelical state can tolerate such conditions. And even more troubling view would be given if the archaic Orshansky Threshold for determing poverty were not applied.
Damned if doing this isn't worth it simply for helping me organize my thoughts and gain exposure to new ideas in that I've just discovered The Alabama Poverty Project. I'll add to Captain Bama post haste!
Peace ... or War!
