Desserted No More

You’ve no doubt heard the (astonishing?) news that the U.S. economy is not recovering as expected.

Even this month, just as hiring seemed to be picking up in the publishing industry, another 100 publishing professionals in a single company lost their jobs to an acquisition.

I feel for them.

This bit of “Twitter Nonfiction” tidily sums up what so many folks have experienced over the past few years:

“Monday, returning manager, white layer cake. Friday, retiring supervisor, Italian cream cake. Weekend, 23 pink slips, no cake.”
—From Creative Nonfiction magazine, by Ralphley

How sweet it isn’t.
