Yup, your host got cut by his company Wednesday--not a huge surprise, given that sales were down 40% and the company's debt exceeds the market cap significantly, and apparently overall liabilities are triple market cap. (hint; now is not a good time to invest in the world's largest disk drive maker....and suppliers are even worse in terms of leverage) Thankfully, severance was generous, so our family is doing fine for now, and I'm sleeping better than I have for a long time the past couple of days. God is good.
And if you're looking for another reason to homeschool, here you go thanks to Apple-cow-ski. Apparently, the bio-diesel mandated for use by school districts for their buses turns into jelly at about ten degrees below zero, clogging fuel injectors and such. So if you'd prefer that your children NOT stand out in 25 below zero cold (up to 50 below windchill yesterday) for hours waiting for a bus, and if you'd prefer that your children NOT sit for hours on that bus when it stalls, you might want to take your children out of the government's schools.
Yet another example of how, yes, environmentalism can injure and kill people.
