Confirmation

Yesterday, despite any misgivings about mistakes on his taxes, Timothy Geithner was confirmed as Barack Obama’s Secretary of the Treasury. And, since they’re calling yesterday “Bloody Monday” on account of the massive number of jobs lost in one day, I’d say this is a good thing.

In other news, CNNMoney posted an article about going back to school and retraining in order to get a new job. Considering President Obama’s plan to create “green” jobs, this isn’t a terrible idea if you are a victim of “bloody Monday.”
