Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

Oh, You Politicians are so Crazy

Well, it's good to see that even though the economy is going into a recession, we're poisening our earth, and it seems every country on the globe is involved in some kind of war, polititions are just as focused as ever on finding ways to be coniving and hypocritical. Eliot Spitzer, the Governor of New York, has just been caught meeting up with a high-priced prostitute in a Washington D.C. hotel, as reported today by the NYTimes. Well, hopefully his wife Silda will do as Hillary did, empowering women everywhere by pretending that nothing ever happened.

Update: being the cheap-ass I am I was curious how much a "high-priced" hooker really costs. Hufington Post answered that question with blurbs from the wiretap, one which says, "Client 9 - believed to be Spitzer - paid $4,300 for a woman named "Kristen" to come from New York to D.C. A portion of that money, however, likely went to credit for future appointments". As Suze Orman says, if you purchase thinking ahead you'll always save. See the full piece on Huffington Post here
