Slipping out of middle class

As Obama looks to the road ahead, we think about the wheelless.

Greg McCray bought a used SUV, which he drove to his job in Exton, a 2.5 hour daily commute.

First he lost his job. Then he lost his truck.

The repo men came for it Jan. 6, a Sunday night about 10:30 p.m.

Today's metro column isn't a plea for a handout. Greg McCray is just pissed at the coldness of a lender that received a $25 billion bailout, and doesn't have to account for its money. It was, by the way, the third time the data analyst was downsized.

It's the first in what ought to be a series of looks at those slipping out of the middle class.
