According to the New York Times there’s a new way to make a living, of course the irony is the people you are trying to sell it all to are in the same boat you’re in.
Just in case you missed it, you can now use your college degree and sell newspapers written by homeless people for homeless or nearly homeless people. You may not make a windfall but according to statistics these types of papers have seen an upswing in circulation (while everyone else has a seen a downswing- sweet irony) and also an upswing in the amount of vendors now turning to this profession.
All in all you may not make a mint, but you may find yourself not suddenly becoming homeless either.
Perverse? Probably, but when hasn’t living in America ever not been perverse?
