It's still the economy!

Day two aboard the Amtrak Crescent traveling from the Big Apple to the Big Easy. My companion at lunch was a "mountain man" looking fellow from central Il. He was just laid off from the second shift at a Mitsibishi plant there. Only one shift now operating. Note to Dubya ya need to get out more and meet some people like this.
I'm not to worried about this fellow. He also raises mules and heads off with several of them each fall and goes Elk hunting Colorado. I'd be more concerned about some of his laid off co-workers with families who are now without jobs.
