Not surprised. But it's still very sad. I feel for the families.

Not surprising......as an aside, our financial manager called us yesterday, and his advice was.......get out of US stocks, the market has had a good run the past few years, but after this last election, he thinks that it's going to tank, further, that we should take our gains before Obama skyrockets the capital gains tax, and eliminates the exemptions on dividends and investment interest. Further, we should move everything to overseas emerging markets, or fixed (offshore) income until a more business-friendly government is in place.

Don't feel sad....most of those layed off, voted for Obama (assuming they are a microcosm of the electorate).

They get the government that they deserve......
