And the recession hits home

Goblin was laid off today. He's taking it well. We'll get by. It'll be painful, but I'm sure there are folks out there worse off than we are.

Sadly, this is going to throw some big vacation plans into the dustbin for this year.

I'm sorry to hear this news. Did he see it coming? So many Americans are in the same boat, I wish you well and hope he finds another job in this tough economic climate.

Summer - Yes and no on the 'seeing it coming' thing. Things haven't been good at the office for a while on a lot of levels (personalities and money). So, it wasn't a real shocker when the ax came that he was one of multiple targets. Still, I think we all live in a state of denial that this could happen to us.

Egad. My sympathies. That's always kind of a rude shock.
