The downslide of the middle class?

Good evening, Netizens…

Here is another David Horsey cartoon that probably hits the mark for most people reading it. In addition to teachers and blue collar jobs, we can add newspaper journalists, since their numbers have been steadily dropping for several years. Although I do not have the latest figures right at my fingertips, although I probably should, the number of newspapers that have shuttered their doors in the last year scares anyone who cares about the power of printed newspaper journalism. We can also add most people who once made their livings on the Gulf Coast, despite what BP says about paying their bills.

In case no one was watching, David Horsey once worked for a daily newspaper in Seattle called the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. It once was a daily newspaper of some considerable merit, and now appears only as an online newspaper, surviving only by their wits and good journalism.

Can you think of any other sections of our national economy that are still in free-fall?
