Helpless Helping and Jaded Jobfinding

On a quick serious note on the Haiti disaster, here's an excellent short piece T wrote for about how just sending money may not seem like as though it does much good, it's the best way to get help to where its needed most.

Now for some local color.

It's a tough job market out there. Nannies must willing to cook, clean, pick up children from their weekly Ululating classes and then be able to help them with their Italian homework.

Journalists who want to write for burgeoning online media sites must be willing to write, research and edit their own stories along with the photos all for $50 or as Grampa Simpson says, "moonpies and penny candy."

The latest must have in this crazy cockeyed caravan of a job market? Penmanship. Yes, they are demanding a handwritten cover letter. None of these gauche fonts for them!

SEO is so 2009. 2010 is the year of haberdashery, looming, grinding one's own India ink, and playing angelic flights of fancy on the harp.
