10/05/'09 Five Minute Riffs

One leaf —a small branch–
One leaf sways with the wind, perilously, hanging on by the frailest of stems to a narrow branch.
It's the way many people live these days, hanging on by the frailest of means—here and abroad.

I listened to a young man say that for pennies a child he and his team expected to deworm 3,000,000 youngsters in Hondorus.
Worms, he said, consumed 25% of the nourishment a child received.

Perilously hanging on—
Why do some people build houses costing millions of dollars and other people live in sub-standard housing?
Do the people living in sumptuous estates ever wonder about the people hanging on by the frailest thread?
