I'm lucky. I have a job and I have health insurance (although I pay through the nose for it from a smaller private company).
Too much of nothing can make a man feel ill at ease -- and I have something. So maybe it is small-spirited (or a childish thing to do) for me to link and post the following stuff on this day.
On the other hand, if I'm not just locked into my own head, maybe this will induce a brief moment of reflection. 12-5-09

Full lyrics to Tears of Rage

. Go ahead and open the link in another window, if you decide to listen to the song.
"It was all very painlessWhen you went out to receiveAll that false instructionWhich we never could believe
.And now the heart is filled with goldAs if it was a purse
.But, oh, what kind of love is thisWhich goes from bad to worse?
Tears of rage, tears of grief,
Why must I always be the thief?
Come to me now, you know
We're so lowAnd life is brief
