So, what do we do if we end up with 20% unemployment in this country. It looks likely if GM goes kaput and the banks sink. I am wishing that the media would start writing or broadcasting substantial stories on how to help the unemployed make it through this crisis. Sort of turning America into one big extended family. This sounds weird coming from a guy like me who has been known as not being 'touchy-feely', but I gotta say a lot of people will need help and hope.
Certainly we cant lay every responsibility on the federal government. Local and state governments have to start gearing up for relief efforts too. Non governmental organizations and church groups don't seem to be preparing and it will be hard for them since their contributions will dry up too. Still, they must involve themselves asap.
