I hate these sorts of situations. I just received a hysterical call from a woman I interviewed a few weeks ago for a story about a local call center closing down right before Christmas.

She was laid off, and now she is facing eviction. She has no local support network, and her unemployment benefits and other forms of aid are being held up by red tape.

I pitched it as a story about the plight of the unemployed to my editors. I'm waiting to hear whether or not they want to wade into this mess.

I want to help her if we can, but damn, we can't write a feature story about every unemployed person in Lawton.

We'll see.

This makes me grateful for my fairly stable life.
