38. a lot of it comes from the media
there is a plethora of urban sitcoms and dramas on the tube but what do you have depicting people in rural areas? beverly hillbillys and the waltons.

if the poor are depicted, it's always inner city poor. sometimes you get a movie about the downtrodden farmer.

maybe we aren't high drama enough for entertainment?

as far as being poor, there were times when we lived on gov sub cheese for a week at a time but most of the time we didn't notice until we got to highschool and the social pressure of clothes and cars kicked in.
