Last night as I trudged in from work, worn out and burned out from talking to crazy people from California all night (I cannot overstate this), I fell on the couch and Bill announced, “The dairy has laid off 60 people.”

HUH?

I said, “That doesn’t make any sense.  No way are people in this area or even Utah drinking less milk because of the economic problems.  That’s crazy.”

I’ve thought about other sudden layoffs and closings.  I believe Utah is a bit insulated from the problems; Bill, for instance, is a Chevy and Buick salesman and he’s still selling cars.  He’s not making the big bucks as often, but he’s still doing okay.

Do you think the whole country’s crazed by fear?  I can’t believe the dairy had to layoff due to poor milk sales.
