Growing up in the South, I learned at an early age that talking about money "just wasn't done." How was it that my best friend's parents could afford a new car and an annual trip to Disney World when we had a ten-year-old Ford Taurus and vacationed at a campsite where the most exciting feature was a public pool? You don't discuss such things, I was told. It just isn't polite to talk about money.
If that childhood edict is the case, then Ben Rimalower's most recent one-man show, Bad With Money, isn't just impolite -- it's downright rude. Not only does he talk about money, he confesses to us that he is bad with it. Really bad.
