"Effective immediately, now that your spouse is disabled…no more money can come into your family....I don't want to live off of the government. I don't want to live in poverty because someone tells me that's where I should live." Stories sought (at Congressman's request) documenting the effects of a law that tries to break up families by denying the able-bodied a chance to earn a living.

Hi, Rita -- The quote isn't mine; it came from a blog entry by RoaringMouse on Caregiving.com -- though my own caree has fallen through the technicality cracks as far as Social Security disability is concerned (we've been to four disability lawyers, to no avail).  Guardian issues differ from state to state.  In Florida where I live, I hold power of attorney but am not a legal guardian; in some other states POA confers legal guardianship.  Getting POA has opened a lot of doors for me; prior to that I had no legal standing whatsoever and could not get my caree the help she needed.  I suggest talking with a lawyer to see what the guardianship requirements are where you live.  I hope you can find a solution.

"Plenty of folks are worried that as Harvard goes, so go other academic libraries – in other words, if massive layoffs can happen at Harvard (with its huge endowments), then no academic library is safe."

Redfield: "The more dramatic your claim is, the better the evidence has to be."
 
Hey - that looks like Rosie Redfield. It IS Rosie Redfield.

Kudos to Glendon Mellow and Karyn Traphagen for curating this show! Am honored to have two works included. "Elementals" appears at the 4-minute mark; "Weevil Have a Happy New Year!" appears at 10:43.

Gorgeous. (I am, however, itching to correct the grammar in the title.)
