Recession Choices

From a New York Times Magazine piece on how the recession is taking a toll on freelancers:

In April, Lisa Feuer sent me another message from her iPhone: “I’m at the food-stamp office now, waiting.” For months, she had been putting off this trip.

Maybe next month they can save her the trip by texting the food stamps to her iPhone.

And when was the last time the New York Times devoted this many column inches to old school food stamp recipients?  You know, the kind who don’t tote around the latest technological accoutrements.
