The Friday Post #54: Job Categories and A Garden Scene

Here’s the Friday Post #54 for Feb 25 2011.
A recent opinion piece published in the online edition of the Wall Street Journal (Feb 17 2011), posed the question: “Is Your Job an Endangered Species“? Author Andy Kessler describes a world in which whole classes of jobs become defunct due to advances in technology.
I do admire his novel classifications on what workers in the 21st century will be called: slimers, sloppers, thieves, super-sloppers and – mais oui! – sponges. Ha ha. According to Mr. Kessler, even physicians and lawyers will not be immune to these job eliminations. He also manages to give a poke at librarians, but then doesn’t tell us what “category” such librarians fall into… Funny reading.
It has been a long, difficult winter with significant snowfall throughout much of the United States. Those regions that didn’t get socked by multiple record-breaking winter storms got hit by flooding and other weather disruptions. When will Spring come and give us all some badly-needed relief!?
