The Poor Are Hardest Hit

The wealth of the rich is their fortified city, but poverty is the ruin of the poor.
John Scalzi phrases this biblical truth more snarkily in a recent criticism of cliched newspaper writing:
Really? The poor suffering the most? It’s hard to imagine. Because, you know, usually when there’s a major global crisis of any sort, it’s the poor sitting there on the sidelines, going whew, dodged that bullet.
