12. Sorry, that article has way too many
Edited on Thu Nov-17-11 01:32 AM by a2liberal
incorrect things and logic fails for me to take it seriously. I don't deny that the poor do have some systematic disadvantages, but when I see myself shaking my head at every other sentence it's hard to take it seriously. Others have already explained some of the problems, so I won't get into it too much unless someone asks me to.
