Had an interview last week

Actually 3 interviews at the same company. Had to make three separate trips of 40 minutes each way, two of them the same day. With any luck I'll be doing manual labor by next week.

5) Sitting on a park bench, watching little girls with bad intent

4) Personal Hygiene is optional

This is what's wrong with our schools.

"students who dress and groom themselves neatly, and in an acceptable and appropriate manner, are more likely to become constructive members of the society in which we live."

Are these people getting creepier, or am I becoming more radicalized?

UPDATE: Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's me.

This is what's wrong with our culture.

(12:28:19 PM) Will: The year was 1939
(12:28:33 PM) Will: and Shirley Temple declined the role of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz
(12:28:51 PM) Will: Damn you, Franklin Delano Roosevelt
(12:28:55 PM) Will: Damn you to hell

Small Businesses Blame Economists for Recession

I had an interview today. It went pretty well. The first person I spoke to told me that they had massive layoffs last year, when the stimulus package was announced and everyone stopped construction projects.
