things are tough all over

With the current economic downturn, it’s currently hard to find work in many parts of the world. But according to a New York-based HR firm, there are places in the world where it’s just hard to work due to things like crime, political unrest, lack of infrastructure, or climate. But the U.S., Canada, and Western Europe were specifically excluded from the list, and most of the cities listed are in Africa and central and southern Asia. That begs the question of how different the list might look if people from non-Western viewpoints had compiled it.

exactly. things are always different when viewed with different eyes. and westerners are notoriously self-centered. it’s hard, yes, but we do have infrastructure daggone it! and no one is blowing up all of our major metropolitan cities trying to overthrow our government. thanks ray.
