How is the downturn in the US economy affecting you?

I live in Australia, so have limited exposure to the US day-to-day economy, but read a fair bit of US media. If you live in the US you can easily look at a NYT story quoting starving Florida realtors and say "beat up", but from here it is hard to tell what is genuine, and what is exaggerated (or at least unrepresentative) to sell newspapers.
