Will the United States ever rise above the evils of classism and racism? Is 'poverty' the new black?
The Vermont Council on Rural Development recently held community wide meetings to explore ways of improving life in small town Bennington. Most of the focus is usually on economic development. This time there was also a meeting focused on the issue of poverty. Meetings such as this are held every year or so. They usually result in discussions about having more meetings to decide when to have more meetings about having meetings. Then someone is appointed to write a report about the meetings.
