Two items in the news

  • I've been reading and reading and reading about the job crisis but don't have any answers or indeed much to add beyond what's at the links. The only answers involve (1) more funding, (2) more emphasis on education, and (3) more jobs in this country, including manufacturing jobs and a system of health care that doesn't depend a person's employment. I'm going to continue to do what I can (as faculty) to create better conditions about this but am not going to write about it.
  • There are a lot of charities that are giving aid in Haiti, including Doctors Without Borders, and all can help.
