I'll tell you the truth. I am the mother of a 22-year-old recent college graduate who is an aspiring actor living in Brooklyn with two friends and looking for a day job. He left home with savings he hoped would last three months, but he's learning that's probably overly optimistic. It's been six weeks, and he is still looking for a job.
During the worst economic crisis since, oh, 1929.
As you might imagine, it's not a great market.
And the fact that he shook hands with Barack Obama at graduation means nothing now.
A mother might begin to wonder about the bounce-back factor. Not that he wouldn't be welcome if it became necessary, but like all mothers, I want him to you know, leave home, do well and find fulfillment somewhere else.
