    Unemployment is really getting bad

    On the way to the gun club today, I saw this:



    I guess hard times have fallen even on super heroes and they are doing what they got to do to feed their families.

    Really kind of sad, seeing people hold signs for a living.

    Actually, Gator students do it down here all the time...a few extra bucks can always help.

    For a living? Pretty boring!

    Better than dressing up as a chicken and holding a sign.

    After all the years the Capt has put in...should he be collecting a pension by now?

    There are guys here in South Florida that stand on the curb and do a cool little acrobatic sign flipping routine. I thought they should add it to the next olympics.

    At least around here those sign holders are paid $10-$13 an hour. Not bad for a job that is viewed much better than working at McDonalds.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
