and alot of them. Thankfully (knock wood, at least for now) I wasnt one of them. It was so hard to watch coworkers who are really nice people who care about their job crying while they packed their desk.

This economy is dreadful.

PinkDandelion,

Oh, I'm so sorry -- that does sound horribly difficult even though you weren't directly affected. And yes, this economy is tough (it's starting to look marginally better -- touch wood -- in my corner of the world, hope that may spread...).

Best wishes,
Alex

I hate news like this, even from a distance...so I can just imagine how awful it would be to be right in the middle of it. And, then, even worse to be the one it happens to. I hope that everyone lands on their feet and with even brighter horizons. That's what I will be wishing for, abundance and plenty for all, in your workplace and our world.

Dreadful indeed. I am so sorry...and I can't say it any better than Tara, so I'll simply say that I echo her thoughts and prayers for all.

I don't know how your employer is going to do without those ppl! I hope they can be hired back soon. I hear that's beginning to happen in places.

We are in a really severe budget situation, I think brought on by our states budget decisions.

Tough, scary times...

Thank you for the well wishes,

and must be very frightening. Are you looking around for something else just in case?

Hope your name never comes up on a "cut" list.
