Thank you Katherine Boo!

I gave up many years ago trying to describe the experience of living in the middle of grinding and profound poverty in the Philippines. An experience which continues to shape my life and worldview seems so alien in the context of privilege in which I have lived most of my life. So I am heartened by Katherine Boo's new book, Behind the Beautiful Forevers. Boo chronicles life in a Mumbai slum in agonizingly blunt and matter of fact language, with little or no commentary. She gives us the experience of living there, witnessing life as much of the world lives it. It's the closest thing I have experienced in the way of media which leaves me feeling like I felt after my years in the Philippines. The Goshen Public Library copy will be returned today!

Rising prices for gas, electricity and other basics
of the cost of living mean that many people are finding their budget stretched more than in the past.
Osoba may use this loan for any purpose, regardless of the nature of their desires.

Based on the amount you need, you may be
unable to repay your payday loan in only one paycheck.
These should always be viewable by the customers in store and on
receipts, but if you find them in neither of these places feel free
to ask the sales clerk. These people have
a fixed budget that they have to work with.
