Kristof on Working Class Woes

From yesterday's New York Times, Nick Kristof on the challenges facing America's working class, and how no one is paying enough attention to them.

With Robert Putnam's forthcoming book on this topic, we can only hope that this pressing national concern will get the attention it deserves.
