Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, it was me.  Guilty as charged.  And becoming guiltier by the moment it seems.  I'm still going to attempt to sway you to the absolute problem camp rather than the relative one.  What information do I need to make my case?  Marek and I got all whipped up because of the recent UN report stating that the US had third-world poverty conditions.  Since the report confirmed what I've seen, it was a relief to have it verified.  But is there some reason the report should be doubted that I'm unaware of?

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
