Job Fair: The 2009 version of the bread line

I’d say I live within spitting distance of the Sheraton, except that every attempt I’ve ever made to spit always resulted in a messy dribble. I had a client at noon today who had to battle through a thousand well-dressed people looped around the Sheraton on this bitter cold, windy day waiting for admission to a “Women for Hire” event, which is allowing men for the first time as a concession to the overall unemployment pain. I’ll try to refrain from cracking jokes about renaming the event. Anyway, it’s almost as impossible to move in my neighborhood today as it is on New Year’s Eve or when Clinton hosts his annual humanitarian/charity pow-wow there. It’s an even more depressing sight than my portfolio statement.
