Out-of-Work Rural America

Local radio. Call-in classifieds. My expectations. Set. By the station’s minimal. Factual. Web presence. Call in items. To buy, sell, trade or give away. What I heard. Was an audio portrait. Of need. Need yard work to pay the electric bill. Need to give away a dog. Need to rent out a fully-furnished room. Need to borrow a semi to pass driving test. Need housecleaning jobs. Need to sell outdated electronics at an inflated price. Need I say more?
