On The Haiku…

Honestly, I don’t know why the haiku is so celebrated. It’s just a random decree about the length of three lines. Like wooowww. Ok. Who was the brilliant Jap that thought of this?

Captain Obvious

I’m speaking for myself when I say financial insecurity is a very serious problem and it’s pervasive in this country. We want to have a country full of confident people. As opposed to a bunch of overworked dollar chasers unsure how they’re going to meet their basic needs. If you study Maslow’s Hierarchy for a brief moment, you’ll notice that well being is highly contingent on the economy and the distribution of wealth. Too many Americans are at the bottom levels of that hierarchy.
