"Sociologists Karl Alexander, Doris Entwisle and Linda Olson followed nearly
800 Baltimore kids starting in 1982, when they were first-graders. Thirty years
later, their study shows just how rare it is to rise from a low-income
childhood to a high-income adulthood, as well as the added challenges black men
face"

Interesting comments, too.
