The Grapes of Wrath - Updated

From an article in today's New York Times about the suffering caused by the current recession:

"... a data security specialist, moved into Mountain House last year, buying a foreclosed property on Prosperity Street for $380,000. But the decline in values has been so fierce that he too is underwater. He has cut his DVD buying from 50 a month to perhaps one, and is waiting until the Christmas sales to buy a high-definition television. He does not indulge much anymore in his hobbies of scuba diving and flying."

I don't know how anyone can endure such hardship.
