I love the panel in the second comic where Power Girl is fanning her face to keep from crying—that’s something I totally do all the time when I cry!

As some of you may know, I’ve been dealing with some fairly serious personal issues lately, and I wanted to take a moment to thank you guys for being patient as JL8 has had to be put on the back-burner for the last few weeks. Your understanding means a lot.

I wrote this piece back around 2008, right after another lesser-remembered mass shooting at Northern Illinois University. This was to be published in the New York Daily News, but the editor decided that it “wasn’t the angle the paper was going for.”  In light of current events, I think it’s quite relevant.

Right after every school shooting, Hal Halpin’s phone rings off the hook.

“Don’t pay too much attention to the decline in either the labour force or the household measure of employment in November. Both measures are volatile and had risen sharply in the previous two months. But the ratios—the unemployment and participation rates—are quite stable, and the recent declines in both are much larger than can be explained by payroll employment. It seems likely that ongoing structural restraints are depressing the size of the labour force: early retirement, more of the unemployed giving up the job hunt, perhaps even shrinking immigration. As Jared Bernstein recently noted, this spells trouble not in the short term but in the long term, because it undermines America’s potential growth rate.”

“It is easy to be skeptical about these attempts to bridge the gap between education and employment. Academic drift is one of the most powerful forces in educational life: look at the way Britain’s technical schools were allowed to wither on the vine and its polytechnics converted into universities.”

—   The Economist, The Great Mismatch. I would love for them to go in depth on the education gap in Japan, i.e., the second-class citizens born out of entrance exam failure and prohibitive tuition costs.
