Remembering Our Last Great Depression

No, no the one from the 1930’s, but the one experienced in Texas in the late 80’s and early 90’s.  I lived through that depression, working in construction.  I packed my bags and went to Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina and Georgia following a stucco crew working on apartment complexes.  It was the only way to survive.

Doing a search for Danny Faulkner, I came across this old Dallas Observer article that retells the tale.  Take the time to read it and you will find a lot of similarities to today’s problems.

I was going to make a post that basically asked why aren’t we seeing some people start to get prosecuted for this mess?  I’m still wondering.
