It's true that I've recently been feeling somewhat depressed about my future (well, honestly, in my place, what sane, rational person wouldn't feel bad?). Inspired by that education (unemployment) cartoon I just posted, a reader, named "Concerned Muggle", wrote one of the funniest, most thoughtful and entertaining comments that I've read in a long time, and of course, I had to share it with you all .. (below the fold);
Although Dumbledore is dead, Voldemort is back, Ollivander's and Fortescue's have both closed their doors and Hogwarts may not reopen for the fall term either, I still had hope. But it scares me to hear that even the Owl Post is cutting jobs. Are they outsourcing the jobs to Indian Hill Mynahs for less money, do you imagine?

The only inaccuracy in that cartoon was that the overeducated graduates don't see it coming. As opposed to reality, where progressive underemployment leads to a slow sinking feeling long before the axe falls.
Let's hope the demand for cloak and broomstick decorations keeps up. ;)
Hope you're keeping the chin up as much as possible.. What happened in the end with the laptop?
