When I first approached this topic in Three Kinds of Poor, I knew what I wanted to say, but really didn’t know the best way to go about it. The result was an article that I thought was weak. The original intent was to provide an extended definition of who the poor were and weren’t as opposed to an argument supporting a point of view, but it didn’t work very well. I posted it anyway, which turned out to be a blessing. I had a good discussion regarding the topic, and was pointed to another article that had been posted a day later. I decided the article would have to be rewritten. This is the rewrite.
