Of course, the news around here led off, after Arlington and points south and east of Dallas, with the Yahoo lay offs (2,000 – with notices coming today).

And, what was right next?

Pay is going up on Wall St.

They’re cheering I am sure as the rest of the nation, or much of it, just slogs on.

Relegated to being outsiders – when women are half, more than half, of the damned species.
