    It's so sad to see what everyone is going through.

    It's there if you look, coded into the swirls and whorls of the civic fingerprint that is Craigslist, a hidden narrative of lives dissolving. No big headlines here, no billion-dollar corporations seeking bailouts. It's just you and me, the little people, the laid-off people, swamped by the growing financial crisis and going broke in plain sight.

    My mom and step-dad just bought a house about 6 months ago. Last month my step-dad was laid off and hasn't so far been able to find another one. They are probably going to lose their house.

    I am so sorry for their situation. I don't know their ages, but I would reckon they are old enough, like me, where it's hard to start over. It just should not be that way.
