  •  I got some news today (0+ / 0-)

    My current position with the client I work for in Dearborn is being eliminated as of the end of next week. I work for a consulting company, so I may be able to move on to another project, I hope.

    There have been several layoffs from here in the last few weeks, including a good friend of mine who was also a volunteer with the Obama campaign.

    And I have a friend moving back here soon who is currently a homeless vet in San Diego (see my recent diary). I just bought a condo in Grosse Pointe, and he'll be living in my old place while I'm getting it ready to sell. Assuming I can still afford to.

    The only good news is, I'm finally moving out of Detroit. I felt like I was Snake Pliskin in Escape from Detroit for a few years, there.

    We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.
