It’s not the first time in the last few years that I’ve read an article that was actually jaw-dropping for me. In fact, it seems the last few years it happens more often than not. My brain races and I find myself thinking, what in the world?
This is so sad, it’s actually a bit, well, funny.
In case you cannot read what is written on the poster board:
“I have a Master of Arts degree in women studies. However, the only job I can find is as a bartender at a local restaurant. I owe over 60K in student loans. I am forced to rely on foodstamps and W.I.C.* to support my son.Is this the “American Dream” I worked so hard for? I am the 99 percent.”
Then there’s a link to occupywallst.org.
I have no idea what Wall Street has to do with her poor decision making in choosing a career but it seems to be a fad.
Hat Tip to AtheistLoki who tweeted this picture with the response “You chose poorly”.

There’s been a debate/conversation (I still have a problem with using conversation when referring to Twitter) about a recent post by one of The Usual Suspects.
On the way into work this morning, I heard an interesting, no shocking news story on NPR.
I was actually looking for this the other day when I wrote this post.
Yes, these are (our?) Teachers protesting. Need I say more?
A little palette cleanser for this morning. It’s just too funny on one hand and sad on the other to pass up making a comment.
