Kinda Black Monday
Everyone can agree that the market news is certainly dismal and it got me to thinking about what we consider necessary to our lives. I look around my campus and almost every girl has a designer bag-guys and girls are decked out in logos head to foot and of course a cell phone is stuck to every ear. When did these become necessities? I remember my god mother telling me that it wasn't what you wore, but how you conducted yourself that was important. I find that people seem to be more interested in the veneer and not the substance of a person. Students are swamped with offers for easy credit and often find it hard to resist the lure of instant gratification. Maybe we should all read How Luxury Lost Its Luster.
