Stone Soup by Jan Eliot for October 23, 1999
Joan: The whole credit ard mentality bugs me. It's all about stuff. As if buying the right stuff will make us more important. Credit card companies want us to believe the "Power to buy" will give us power and control in our lives. But the debt we incur chains us down, taking away our freedom and choice. Val: So, nobody should use credit cards? Joan: Just for emergencies. Holly: Mayday! Mayday! If I don't get these khaki capris I'll die!!
