Want to be in an article? Looking for guys with no savings

Do any of you Collision Detection readers want to be in a magazine piece?

I’m been asked to write an article about “why young guys today don’t save as much money as their folks” — or their grandparents, who basically used to save bits of string. Personal savings-rates have steadily dropped over the last few decades, while debt levels have skyrocketed, and it’s due heavily to the meager savings of folks aged 20 to 40.

So I’m interviewing any guys in that age-range who have slim savings and/or lots of debt, to find out how they got in that situation and what they think of it! (It’s guys only, because this is for a men’s magazine.) If anyone wants to share their experience for this piece, email me! I don’t bite. Heh.
