"I worked my way through a top notch college on a $10.00 an hour part time grocery store job, but that was nearly 50 years ago. I was also able to afford a car (a souped-up jalopy) and my own studio apartment beginning in the second year. Today, that same college cost six times the old tuition (not including books, etc.)..$10.00 and hour will only feed a family of four by dividing a single meal into four portions. It doesn’t pay for transportation unless you cut out the meal and it definitely doesn’t pay for rent. Of course, in my day, clothes were simply not big-ticket items and they lasted indefinitely, being well made by American Union workers (I actually still have a pair of shoes and several shirts and pants from that time which I still wear now and again)."

It helps to inspire the many writers that don’t write or creatives that don’t create.

"If John Boehner were a woman, they’d be calling him the weakest Speaker in history." — Nancy Pelosi

Likely true. (Pelosi’s ability to gather the democrats in the house would make her, historically, a good Speaker.)

I’ve been thinking a lot about last night’s “Breaking Bad” series finale; what follows are some thoughts and impressions about justice and the moral universe of the show.
Spoilers abound, so click at your own risk.

Agreed. 
Part of the issue is the finality of the series ending. Had Walt lived then there’s likely a great section of the audience that would have wanted him to continue being Heisenberg. There would always be that question of “what’s next?” Instead, Walt died on his own terms which bring the consequences on him versus everyone else in his world rather small. Then that becomes the writer’s problem—does Walt get apprehended before his death going with the notion that “justice prevails!” or does he live leaving the audience without that sense of finality?
Breaking Bad had a good ending, but perhaps not a great one.
