Road to Retirement Can Be Tough for Many Americans
Mon Mar 23, 2015
My pension (after 12 years) was too small for the company to keep, so it got turned over to me and I bought stock, which during the downturn I had to sell to live. Bankruptcy, food stamps, etc., have followed. Retirement? I'm old enough, but it's not going to happen for me unless the lottery fairy h …
Class in America: Why Your Status Depends on Where You Live
Thu Mar 19, 2015
I moved from Westchester County 10 years ago. Started the trek north and looked at 65 houses before finding one in Dutchess County that seemed reasonable. Today that house is no longer reasonable and taxes (while half of Westchester's) are ridiculous. Looking to move to the greater Seattle area. I'm …
American Dream Home: What's the Middle Class Without a House?
Tue Mar 17, 2015
Our house is a nice prison. Just about everything we make goes to the mortgage, taxes and insurance. And oil/electric. But we can't sell easily, since a sale would barely cover the mortgage, and we'd end up with nothing. Ten years ago we put 20 percent down and then lost all the equity in the crash. …
Are You Ready to Retire? That Depends
Thu Mar 5, 2015
I am 59 this year and would love to even think of retiring or doing something different. I have worked for myself for 25 years. But I can't afford it and at this rate, will never be able to retire. Maybe someday...especially once I get out of New York!
Menopause Misery Can Last 14 Years, Study Finds
Tue Feb 17, 2015
Going on 12 years for me. But I've learned to avoid ginger and too much sugar. Maple syrup is a guaranteed trigger. Nice to know maybe there's only two years to go.

Please fix the transcript...you have a terrible typo in which the survivors will be flown over the area to play...I'm sure you mean PRAY.
One in 30 American Children Is Homeless, Report Says
Mon Nov 17, 2014
It seems obvious that none of you have ever experienced the constant dread of being one paycheck away from losing your home. And you've never gone hungry to feed a child. Have never had to apply for any social services. It doesn't matter whose fault it is; it matters only that it's real. Why not fin …
Two Americas: Many Brace for Have-Not Holiday Season
Wed Nov 5, 2014
No Christmas here, except maybe something small for the kids. We'll have a nice home-cooked dinner, and we're saving to make that special. It's very hard to be cheery when clients aren't paying on time (or at all) and you can't see the next month's mortgage payment.
Drug Maker Mylan Takes $70 Million Hit in Battle Over Lethal Injection

What's wrong with a lethal injection of heroin? Morphine? Sleeping pills?
Denim Is in Real Danger of Going Out of Fashion
Mon Aug 11, 2014
I love my jeans, but I refuse to pay more than $50 (sometimes way more) for a pair. Gap jeans are almost $70! I either get my jeans from a second-hand shop or from Walmart, where you can still get them for less than $25. Even on sale from Eddie Bauer or Lands End or Victoria's Secret, jeans ar …
