    The problem with this article is...it says the suburbs are getting poorer, but it doesn't tell us if the old places where the poor were traditionally located are still there, or if the yuppies moved into town and made those places too expensive, forcing the poor out.

    It also ignores the fact that since the big crash in housing, houses in some suburbs got very cheap, allowing some on the edge of "poor" to take advantage of the lower payments.

    And lastly, what is their definition of "poor" and poverty?

    As with everything in this Country, the pendulum has swung too far to one side. For years now our Governments have worked to fix the problem with the inner cities. In so doing they have neglected the suburbs. Now that the attention is changing to poverty in the suburbs the pendulum will swing back in that direction. Unfortunately, finding a happy medium in this Country is never an option.

    Where have all the travel trailers gone, long time passing, where have all the travel trailers gone lone time ago. where have all the travel trailers gone, gone to scrap yards in China every one. When will we ever learn, oh when we ever learn.

    In other words --

    The Rich are indeed getting Richer,
    and the 99% are indeed getting poorer...
