an unemployed guy from Jersey City, New Jersey

this is off topic and so i know it'll probably be deleted, but...

i haven't listened to the show all this week, so maybe i missed stories on the DC rally for the unemployed this weekend. there's almost a blackout on this story in the media it seems to me. are people just made uncomfortable by it? would they rather not think of the long-term unemployed in the same way many have simply stopped seeing the homeless on the streets? some economists are saying we're going to be looking at nearly 10 percent unemployment for at least another year. is this going to be accepted as the status quo? is it affecting the lower classes more than the typical NYC listening audience and so isn't seen as an issue worth covering?
