    Dilbert used to be a lot funnier when I had a job. I worked through most of the Dot.Com Meltdown.

Just as we were getting re-established, my wife’s parents both got sick and her brother was activated to Iraq. So, we took off a couple of years to bury all four of our parents. Then, we decided to complete the four-year degrees we never needed before. Now we have them. Not finding work myself, I returned to graduate school. Dilbert rings hollow.
