The reason is that it's really, really hard, and too many of us in too many spheres of life choose the easy over the hard.
Americans are paying for our lack of an energy policy with their jobs and out of their pocketbooks.
I would have been very happy just working from job to job, paying my rent one movie at a time. I never wanted to be this famous. I never imagined this life for myself.
