was it really only eight years ago…

the company i work for is moving to a new building…so today, while cleaning one of my file cabinets, i found a wall street journal money & investing section lining the bottom of one of the drawers…dated March 27, 2000…this was the above the fold feature story…

(clicking makes it grow)

were we so optimistic that we were actually looking for the end…that was just around the corner…if i remember correct…i just got hired…or was about to be…at janus funds…a year later…only a year later…a whole slew of us were laid off…along with every other shmoe in the lower echelons of the corporate ladder…

yet, i remember thinking that was a temporary setback…that jobs were plentiful, and i would soon fall into another plum position in some cubicle somewhere…

boy we’ve come a long way…

i also find this little tidbit interesting…

    Ahh – the good ol’ days. Before America got bent over and ass-raped for eight years…
