  1. Thanks for the must-see reality check.

      1. A terrific read - thoughtful, not whiney, no excuses and surprisingly upbeat. Thanks for posting.

        1. Sometimes it's good to take a step back, read something like this and think, "there but for the grace of God, go I."

            I completely agree. Here's someone who had an enviable position and is now struggling to find work in his field. It's definitely made me want to count my blessings when I read it. I think it took a great deal of courage for him to be so publicly candid about his situation.

            1. I can relate to a lot of that article some of it hits pretty close to home as I am on foodstamps.

              1. I admire his acceptance, his candor, his lack of shame. And what great parents to have.
                Though that tomato soup dish... gak.
