On On the Purchase of New Pillows

@ThatJenn I'm also a fan of Target pillows, for equally indistinct reasons.

On Soon We Will All Enter Through The Poor Door

My problem with the Poor Door is that there is no harm done to the non-Poors by having to share One Door, other than to their egos/non-Poor sensibilities. And harm done to egos is definitely in the category of things I am not moved by.

On How Much Is Your Iced Coffee?

$2.09 at Starbucks or $1.70 at the cafeteria upstairs if I'm running late (this counts as local, right?)

On Catching a Break After Years of Barely Making Ends Meet

I was very pleasantly surprised at the effect even a small increase in income did to my financial situation, with my mountain of debt and all. I hope you will be too!

On The Burrower: Part I

Um, couldn't you alert someone about the bug/rodent situation without having to divulge the fact that you're crashing there overnight?

On It's a Good Time to Go to Law School? Really?

I get a little defensive when I see these kind of articles. I graduated from law school in 2010 and I had a great experience there. It was hard to find a job afterward, yes, but I eventually did and I'm pretty happy. I wouldn't advise everyone to go to law school but I would also not issue a sweeping statement to the effect that it's a waste of time & money or that you're bound to end up doing soul-killing work. There are many fine public interest lawyers out there, including the Billfold's own Josh Michtom.
