A revealing tale of unemployment

Sorry it took me a day or two to get to this, but I was reading Friday's Detroit News and came across this honest and surprising column by News writer Marney Rich Keenan.

In it, Rich Keenan describes how her husband lost his job this week when advertising agency BBDO decided to close its doors. (The agency lost its Chrysler contract and may shutter its Troy office for good by January.)

I hope she continues this story in future columns. It could shed a lot of light onto how Michigan is faring with jobs losses and one family's insights.
