Right now people all over the country have one concern: money. How to make it and how to hold on to it has always been a major concerns for mostly everyone, but it seems that for the past year or so people have been scrambling even harder to find those answers. Everywhere you turn, people are talking about the economy, and a couple years back it was terrorism and then the conflict in Iraq. Does anyone even remember what the last big public concern before that? Remember that little thing called global warming with holes in the ozone layer, the sea levels rising, and movies about those poor little penguins. It’s not that people forgot that the problem existed or that they stopped caring about melting glaciers its just that it’s kind of hard to advocate for melting ice when you’re about to lose your house. The economy and trying to prevent it from collapsing is just this period’s hot topic. I’ll still remember to recycle, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t trade all of Antarctica for the country’s deficit to be resolved. I know that a horrible thing to say, but honestly would anyone miss it? Seriously, it’s not like any humans live there.   – Ruben
