hello there rss reader….

Hi. Today I’m going to try creating more than one entry, using different categories, and seeing how that works. The mailto form is now fixed, in case you tried to use it and failed yesterday. I’m slowly converting older pages [not the archive pages but the other content pages] to MT format. Let me knowif anything looks weird.


Anchorage library laying off 22 higher-educated librarians, hiring ten new workers at lower pay. Whenever they ask me about the “librarian shortage” I point them to stories like these.

[the mayor] described the library’s layoffs of upper-end employees and the hiring next year of 10 new workers at lower pay as a restructuring…. they will not receive severance pay but will be able to cash out unused leave… Some can choose whether to accept the layoff or to exercise “bumping rights” to move down a step, pushing other workers further down.
