If you caught Real Time with Bill Maher this past weekend you caught Sister Linda Tirado on their talking all things "Hand to Mouth: Living in Bootstrap America". If you're not up on the author and her new book then hit the links below for further info!!! This is a Big Brother literary recommendation, family!!!
About this joint:
We in America have certain ideas of what it means to be poor. Linda Tirado, in her signature brutally honest yet personable voice, takes all of these preconceived notions and smashes them to bits. She articulates not only what it is to be working poor in America (yes, you can be poor and live in a house and have a job, even two), but what poverty is truly like—on all levels.
In her thought-provoking voice, Tirado discusses how she went from lower-middle class, to sometimes middle class, to poor and everything in between, and in doing so reveals why “poor people don’t always behave the way middle-class America thinks they should.”
And a little more on this joint:
Perhaps we should try to make a flavor that addresses this book's topic--an ice cream flavor that tastes like poverty (and we're joking...half way). Any suggestions on the ingredients for such a flavor are welcome, family.
