retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Los Angeles Times this morning reports that Hallmark and several other greeting card companies are out with a new lines of cards - expressing sympathy and encouragement to the newly unemployed.

Some of the expressions are heartfelt, as in, "Losing a job is just plain painful. So I want you to remember I'm in your cheering section."

Some have a tinge of shared bitterness, as in one with a photo of a cat that reads, "Is there anywhere I could hack up a hairball, like say, on a former employer's head?"
KC's View:
The way things are going, this may not just be a temporary product line. It could have legs ... which isn’t a good thing.
