some teachers were talking today about layoffs. our school will let some teachers go. don't know when or which. for those young in the system, it is a nervous time.
"In Albany, the deficit for the upcoming fiscal year has reached more than $15 billion and grows by $60 million every day. State workers face layoffs, salary deferrals and benefit cuts.
New York City entered the recession later, but the deterioration has been so rapid that the mayor ended the property tax cut six months early, made mid-year cuts to agency budgets including the Department of Education and modified the financial plan two months ahead of time. A budget gap of $4.3 billion (10 percent of city revenues) is expected for the next fiscal year, and that will grow to nearly $7 billion -- almost 16 percent of city revenue -- in 2011.Between the city and state, education is slated for more than $1.5 billion in cutbacks, which will translate to reductions in individual school budgets of 8 to 12 percent."
thanks to dottie lasky for the break. for the much needed laughter. a good looking winter coat is hard to find.

Who says pizza with onions & sausage and some post (italian open pie made of thin bread dough spread with a spiced mixture of e.g. tomato sauce, cheese, onion and sausage) consumption juggling can't make a winter wonderland of your apartment.
