Lean Times
August 27, 2009 9:22 AM   Subscribe

I'm working on a theme based zine/journal and need help brainstorming for the latest issue. It's about the recession.

It's going to be related to the recession. It could be something like "pinching pennies" "lean times" or "the bread line". Looking for other phrases that get to the root of the recession. Anything and anything will be considered.
