keeping the happy train rolling

Following up yesterday's post. It APPALLS me that 15% of the nation now lives below the poverty line. 4th year this has increased in a row.

Now for me, I can't even think of 1 person that fits this description. But the stat is 1 and 6 Americans. And I bet, if someone were to apply a social network concentration analysis of that 1 and 6 percentage, they would find that for some people, their social networks rate 1 of 2 whereas in other cases, it's 1 of 3, 1 of 4 and so forth, degrading down to a point with people like me, where even if (likely) someone in my social network is in fact below the poverty line, let's say 1 in 15, it's not AS IF they would be "liking" Poverty, for me to be able to tell it. ya dig?
