Tarp Nation

From New America Media...

"Fresno, which the Brookings Institution ranked in 2005 as the American city with the greatest concentration of poverty, is far from the only place where people are resorting to life in makeshift abodes."

Interesting article for me as I remember a time when Fresno was the wealthiest city in the state...more wealth was concentrated in Fresno than in Beverly Hills. Why? The answer was agriculture. No, it wasn't the workers with all of that wealth, it was the farmers and ranchers. I don't doubt that it's still the same... Agriculture grows poverty.
