Maureen Cavanaugh : The recession is introducing us to a lot of things we'd rather not experience. We're seeing some stores we've shopped at for years disappear. It's hard to get a loan, and job security...well, who's got that anymore? And for people who have actually lost their jobs, they're being introduced to a world without health insurance.
