89. YEs, indeed--decades of being beaten down will do that to a person.
Next week's essay will address some of that.

Unfortunately, "The new poor" don't really have much compassion for those who've been experiencing this for a long time... they think they are somehow "special". :( All of this, of course, is generalization, and there are individual differences in all of this!
