AND NOW, THE REST OF THE STORY: Starving on the Prosciutto-and-Brie Poverty Diet.

Michelle Malkin does yeoman work, going into the details of Talia Jane, the woman we mentioned on Monday who complained about the how expensive it is to make it San Francisco, whose screed resulted in her being fired by Yelp, in which she mentioned being “25-years old, balancing all sorts of debt and trying to pave a life for myself that doesn’t involve crying in the bathtub every week.”
