price is back down... and I'm getting closer...

(I'm not really buying nine of them... it registered a few of my previous clicks)

The promotional price is over... we’re back to $85 and I can’t put it in the cart.

Drat.

I’m trying to order a few. If I get multiples, one is yours.

Maybe not the krul, but I have a soft spot for Krull

I don’t know if I like this comparison

I’m surprised that the article didn’t touch on another (what I think is an) important topic: availability of services and public transportation. When I was doing lots of outreach work, I would agonize for some of these people whose situation was this dire. In Denver, if you live within 5-10 miles of downtown, your rent is easily double that of what you’d find in the burbs, as in $2500 vs. $950 for a 2 bedroom.

But do you know what the burbs don’t have? A clinic that accepts Medicaid for your asthmatic kid, or the monthly program that lets your kid get free clothes from some weird fourth tier “stuff that TJ Maxx couldn’t even sell” program. There’s one bus route that comes every 45 to 90 minutes instead of three routes with a bus every 10-20 minutes.

It’s a tough transition to make for sure, and urban areas have the services that the burbs (very intentionallly) do not.

I think it only has to be higher than the amount hey currently spend on lobbyists to allow this kind of behavior

Day 1 of a field trip in the mountains with 30 third graders.

It is a true highlight of my year.

I’m glad you have this place to share out loud the complicated contents of your heart and mind. You’re working through some serious, serious territory. I won’t pretend to give you any answers.

We’re here for you.
