QUESTION OF THE WEEK- How has the financial crisis affected you?


Joy LeBlanc: "As a server, not as many people are coming in to eat, so that's obviously affected me. But I live downtown, and I don't have to drive anywhere, so that's not so bad."


Greg Jackson: "I don't drive at all, I ride the bus, and I don't do a whole lot of shopping. So it hasn't affected me."


Nancy Seal: "I'm worried sick about where my money is kept because of my 401k and my S[avings] I[nvestment] P[lan]. Grocery items have gone up as much as a dollar– a gallon of milk, bread, cooking items, meat, everything I can think of."
