This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Working for the Weekend
It bothers me that everything has to happen on a Saturday or Sunday to accommodate people that have traditional working hours. This, despite the fact that more and more people are moving into the service economy and working hours that don't neatly fit into the 9-5 mon-fri workday. In fact, were it not for this class of people working these hours it would not be possible for weekend warriors to "do" all those things they want to "get done" on the weekends.

I wonder if that thought ever crosses their mind?

Thus it is that when you work in the service world you watch so much of the events going on around you go by as you work.

Having the world conform to your work schedule is a form of privilege. It seems that the longer you take for granted that things will happen when they are convenient to you the more likely you are to not notice how this effects other people. At some point you cease to notice that many, if not all the institutions in society are working for you and not against you.

Today on Oprah, she expressed surprise at just how hard it is for people working for low wages to get by in America. She was astonished to learn of all the extra obstacles that these working poor people have to deal with on a daily basis. Nothing is ever as simple as it is when you have money and freedom of movement.

Its all too easy to assume that the world in which one lives in is the same for other people as well. When you do this it makes it easy to assume that they should be able to reach the same levels of material comfort and security as you.
