Aw well here we go again. The esteemed institution that's employed me since the Carter administration is on the edge. The Pacifica Radio Network has been slamed pretty good between the eyes by the Second Great Depression.
Amazing it held up as long as it did.
Anyway we're having local deferred payrolls. That means they can't pay us on time. Reminds me of the Great Repression of 1982...thanks Mr. Reagan. That's the last time this sort of thing happened. We hardly got paid for months. It's centuries ago, but was such a trauma that old timers here remember it vividly.
Being commies we used to pool the tiny portions of the pay we did get. This way we all ate. Also some of the comrades took to living at the station, wbai.org. We had a vacant second floor that became a dormitory of sorts.
This made for..ahem, some cozy circumstances. Remember we were in our twenties, and stoned, and horny most of the time. However this time things may be a bit rougher. We're some of us near or actual senior citizens grumpy easily annoyed, and need all sorts of meds. Not the fun kind neither.
Damn I put off paying my electric bill till this pay cycle.
Well looks like I may be reading by candle light for a bit. As for the rent....humm. I'll have to get back to ya on that. I may have to get ready to be houseless again. Aw rats I was just getting comfortable too.
If only Obama had got elected back in '08.
