Success?

John Morton of the Pew Charitable Trusts has found that men in their 30's are doing worse than their fathers did for the first time in American history.

In 2004, the median income for a man in his 30s, a good predictor of his lifetime earnings, was $35,010, the study says, 12% less than for men in their 30s in 1974 -- their fathers' generation -- adjusted for inflation. A decade ago, median income for men in their 30s was $32,901, 5% higher than 30 years earlier.

Watch the photo line-up in the pdf file, where they show you the different families: an ethnic gay couple, a white single mother, an ethnic single mother, a white grandmother and son, an ethnic family.

No white man.

Like in the Soviet Union, people who have fallen from grace are painted out of the picture.

Miss Ondrya (love the name by the way) sorry to be a nit picky git but I have to point out "fallen from grace" implies: we fucked up and got caught. I personally would prefer the term "been pushed from grace", I think it's more accurate in this situation.
