...but since a friend insisted yesterday that my last post might give people a bad impression of my own past, I added a clarification comment to the thing. I almost never post about personal stuff, so I suppose when I do, I ought to be clear.
One of the things writing the clarification made me think about was how beneficial it would be if everyone could see how others live in economic terms, as well as regional/social/etc. Not only would privileged people finally understand how easy it is to fall through the cracks -- however hard you work -- but those unaccustomed to really serious privilege (i.e., almost everyone on earth) would finally see how few of the rules they take for granted actually have any application whatsoever to their masters -- who, after all, hire the guys who write the things in the first place.
Anyway, those of you writing AJ biographies (ha!) won't want to miss the clarification comment to my last post ("Parochialism: a rant").
There, sultry ash-blonde. Satisfied now? ;)
