Re: “The cost of electricity is devastating Eastern North Carolina

I worked as a mobile collector for Utility Mobile Service, as a collector, I noticed, the bills were always higher in areas that had large numbers of African Americans, In some cases The country club was across the street from the mobile home park, But all the utility bills in the country clubs were were between $110.00 and $160.00, but the poor neighborhoods had bills that ranged from $280.00 to $550.00 I brought the issue up to my supervisor, He just replied, "that's why you never move to black neighborhoods" I use to think we were better than that as a people. But when it comes to the south. Well!

Re: “I thought my baseball card collection had value. It did, but only to me.

Now, if you were to have instead spent that money on pokemon cards... you would have come up on the top.
I spent about $30 on pokemon cards when I was a kid, and managed to turn that $30 into $200.
mostly first edition and shadowless cards. But a good number of rare japanese ones at that.

sorry your baseball cards werent worth anything.. :(
I dont think anyone particularly cares about sport cards anymore. Baseball itself is also dying out.
