  •  I need to renew this month (3+ / 0-)

    and I can't get myself to do it. I started at 54 dollars; in November 2012 it got cut 20, which I think was the result of some previous blackmail deal, then another 7 to offset my COLA, then recently another 11, leaving me with $20. And with this year's COLA, that would be cut another few dollars.

    My COLA is $15. It's so demoralizing, I just can't bring myself to deal with renewing...

    Being attentive to the needs of others might not be the point of life, but it is the work of life. It can be ... almost impossibly difficult. But it is not something we give. It is what we get in exchange for having to die. - Jonathan Safran Foer
