So, I'm finally on the road to really having all the tools for my job search ready to go.  It took a while to get over being stunned by my situation.  I am sure it is a more common affliction this fall than in the past few years.  The entire county is going throught some interesting times.  Guess I can too.

Well now what?

Early Wednesday morning and I'm still waiting to see who will be in the Senate from the state where I live, Minnesota - I guess I don't feel much like a Minnesotan tonight until I see who comes out on top.  We just elected a pro business mayor, and an anti business president - I don't see this working very well.  I'm really worried - Obama now needs to actually do something - and what he wants to do will change America - into another country.  Biden was right; I remember back in the 1980's shortly after Regan was elected - the old AP teletype machine was equipped with a bell, to note when something came in on "the wire" and needed our attention - one bell meant a scheduled report was in, three bells was breaking news - that night someone at AP leaned on the bell and didn't let up for at least 30 seconds - The hostages were being freed ASAP - because Tehran did not want to "test" our new President elect.  There are no more AP wire bells - and I don't think there will be time to ring them anyway.  I fear the next big strike is around the corner - and I do not think the president elect has the capacity to deal with it.  Biden was right, our main mass media is a JOKE.  Bette Davis had the right line for our situation.  "Buckle Up, it's going to be a bumpy night.

Back to the Future?

This weekend I went back to my Alma Matter - aka the U of MN for the 100th anniversary of the Mortuary Science program that is part of the Medical school.  It was good to take a step back and see where I started.  Met some more of the wonderful graduates and this years crop of students.  It's a good feeling to still feel that the "dismal profession" is my calling.  Now I just need a place to practice.  I just want to care for families the way I care for my own.
