It is interesting to me that there can be a full page discussion of supermarket espionage and judgment, and no one has mentioned food stamp mothers and their children, and how it is even more painful to watch people super-fatten themselves and their children with your own money. I hate[ the grocery store and always leave angry.
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
Jack london, "Before Adam"
