Marriage prospects.

Katherine Boo's long New Yorker article in the August 18-25 issue, "The Marriage Cure," profiles two women in an Oklahoma City housing project who are trying to find husbands and a way out of poverty. It may be the most devastating feature story I've read.

Update 1.15.04: Thanks to Tapped, I see that Boo's article is now on-line.
