Two Minute Post on Security

This has nothing to do with Dick Cheney.

Growing up, I always felt that my family had a sense of security. I knew that we were squarely at the low end of the middle class and had no illusions of getting a sick Beemer as my first car, but we were ok. I wonder in today's economic climate, as a highly-trained individual with no real long-term career prospects on the horizons, if there was ever a real sense of economic security in this world. Did my father fear for his job but hide it from me? Did my mom, who worked part time, consider going full time to make more cash? Are things really that much worse than they were in the 1970s or the 1990s?
