… note from Seoul, Korea

I’m here in Seoul this week to participate in a Youth Specialties conference … should be a great time (if I can recover from jet lag!). Had a wonderful weekend with my family gathered for our youngest daughter’s graduation in Portland Oregon … I am blessed indeed.
Just read this excellent article from Arianna Huffington. Key quote:

It’s time to stop pretending that the Wall Street economy is the same as the real economy. The Wall Street economy may be showing signs of life — thanks to the hundreds of billions we have poured into it — but the real economy isn’t.
“Don’t tell me about the stock market,” wrote Bob Herbert last week. “Don’t tell me about the banks and their perpetual flimflammery. Tell me whether poor and middle-income families can find work. If they can’t, the country’s in trouble.”
