Deep Thoughts

Obviously Josh's Deep Thoughts are generally done in the spirit that mine are, with a healthy dose of stupidity irony, but it's still important to understand that it's really really hard to make a truly rich person poor, absent hauling them off in shackles. There's a big difference between falling down a few social classes and, you know, being homeless. I'll even be a bit sympathetic and acknowledge that anyone who finds their socioeconomic status in jeopardy is experiencing a great degree of distress. But distress is not poverty. Even if Mrs. Tom Friedman's mall company goes bankrupt, the mustache of understanding will still not have to suck on anything it doesn't want to. Though, sadly, he'll still be making us suck on it!
