Weekly Links- Oct 14-21, 2011

I am going to start a new feature here. Each week, usually on a Saturday; I will post several links from the week recounting some of the most prominent and sometimes strangest stories of the week. We will see how this feature takes shape.
  • Gap between wealthy and average worker continues rising.
  • U.S census data released Thursday that poverty grew in states across the country. States with the highest poverty: Mississippi (22.4%) and New Mexico (20.4%). State with the lowest poverty rate New Hampshire (8.0%), one of the few states with a poverty rate below 10%.
  • Conservative post of the week: One may not agree with Victor Davis Hanson. And while he uses his National Review article  to bash the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement, he does make some good points about the larger economic challenges that face us.
