“We live in a land of plenty but some people are so greedy that they’ll steal from the blind.” Folksinger / guitarist Jeff Ampolsk sings about how Sally solves her problem of running out of money, how a blind man knows that he is being taken advantage of while mopping floors in a factory and how a young superstar basketball player’s destiny is changed the moment he is hit by a diesel truck. These are the struggles of the working classes in the American South that comprise some of Ampolsk’s casual reflections on life.
