The only statistic that matters

Two weeks ago this Thursday I was laid off from my job. On the way home, I listened to smart people on NPR talking about the jobless rate and government bailouts. I’d like to say that I heard what they were discussing from a different perspective, as I drove home contemplating resume revisions and wondering how the unemployment process works. But really, I didn’t. Talking about people’s lives in the agregate is just plain hard to relate to. And smarter people than me think about these macroeconomic issues on a daily basis. I decided that all I could do was reach out to everyone I know, and most of the people they know, and do what I can to disunemploy myself. What’s your plan to get through this economic turmoil?
