The State of Things

1. Yesterday at the BART station I overheard a guy say he was sacked. There were 2500 people in his department and they got rid of 2000 of them.
2. In the last week I have seen two people in my neighborhood sleeping in their cars
3. My sweetie works in a school. I taught him to play a game that only requires a wall clock but none of the rooms where he works has working clocks
4. My sweetie teaches the kids computer lab. He had a kid recently seriously ask him how to get to "the game that makes a blank screen you can write with." He had another child who did not know what the space bar was for.

The budget cuts continue.
