It's all a very sad reflection of our society today.
It's also very scary, because if this is how people act to get something they don't need, how will they act if there were food shortages?
I have to agree with this.
Many things will never change as long as such a high value and priority are placed on getting $200 shoes for 14 year old kids versus paying for college prep courses or tutors.
