    This is great. There is a really nice house in my neighborhood that is empty. I think I'm going to go take it over. Somebody else can have mine.

    Grapes of Wrath, Rose of Sharon

    While that ending scene is a shocker, and no doubt one reason many schools banned the book, I found the embedded stories about police attitudes and brutality, about the unkindness of one human to another, and the rare noble act, more intriguing.

    Most importantly, it is a primer on just how bad things can get.

    Sort of a "Brewster's Millions" story without the funny stuff as it is for real, you can go from OK to nothingness in no time.

    The sayings, "most people are one pay check from disaster," and "most men lead lives of quiet desperation," are truisms. Too many participants here think it will never happen to them. They are sadly mistaken.
