    Already our elderly and otherwise less able-bodied are being cared for by folks who will do the hard personal chores for very little wages.  Makes it tough if Grandpa's hearing is a mite off and the "tech" doesn't speak English very well.  Some of the staff are wonderful, putting a lot of dedication into a dead-end overworked job.  Others -- well -- resent the irrational demand of the "old fogies" who are helpless in their care.

      and see who's changing the diapers.  When I was laid off and applying for training through the state retraining program, they were begging people to sign up for CNA training.  Nobody was interested.  I'd hate to think of the people doing that job being exploited that way.

      I bought a hoodie to show solidarity with Trayvon Martin, but nobody notices me.
