Economy check

In the last, say, six months, amongst people known to me personally:

1 local business closed (Mississippi)
1 systems analyst laid off (Illinois)
1 administrative assistant laid off (Connecticut)
1 local newspaper reporter laid off (Mississippi)

Just keeping track, you know?

I personally know three bankruptcies, two layoffs, and am having my own home shortsaled.

Ayiyi. People keep saying it's about to get better, but I'm not seeing it yet.

Oh dear, there is a lot of suffering right now. I hope it is getting better soon.

I liked what you wrote on post secret, about the ring finger. It's so true.
