The Way We Live Now: short. And sweet? Well, one out of two ain't bad. Who wants to dwell on economic troubles longer than necessary when it's time to leave work and wish you had the money for a vacation?

We don't want to keep you from your troubles any longer than necessary. The Afghan banking crisis grows worse. Ben Bernanke's taken responsibility for his incompetence. If you're young from a blue collar family, you'll never move up in this country. Even the unemployed who got re-employed are underemployed and unsatisfactorily employed.

But America is slightly less unemployed than expected this month!

May you find satisfaction in your employment, or lack thereof, this "Labor Day" weekend. Amen. [Pic via]
