  •  Very saddened by this (5+ / 0-)

    I grew up in Grand Rapids.  I am a few years older than you.  Have lived in the Chicago area for the past 30 years, but Michigan will always be my spiritual home.  It is outrageous that a state with such excellent farmland, natural beauty, fine schools of higher education, and good people has been so screwed over by its largely Republican governors and Republican legislature.  I truly hope the people of Michigan (and especially west Michigan, home to the religious Right) will finally wake up and take their state back from the brink of disaster.

    Best wishes to you in your job search.  My own sister has been through the wringer, so I am very familiar with the misery of being unemployed in these difficult times.
