Economic Exile

In hours I leave hearth and home in Georgia, headed to New England in search of better “professional opportunities,” that is to say, a job.

Unemployment is high in the South, and although probably not that much better in NE as a percentage, there simply are more opportunities there.

But my trusty laptop travels with me, and I will expound on politics, economics, and whatever other bullshit I see and experience as we go along in the new “Age of Obama.”

Hopefully by the end of next week I will be coming to you from Hartford, CT.

Why did I choose Hartford? I don’t know except that it puts me in a good spot to apply to jobs all over New England and even reaching down into New York and New Jersey if need be.

While this will be a lonely time for me personally, it should be a good time for the blog because I will likely have plenty of time to write here — and plenty of angst to share.

If you aren’t reading BTF yet, now would be a great time to start.

It’s going to be a bumpy ride!
