Just wanted to warn Tech Writer that what Richard is experiencing in Colorado is definitely not the case out here in California!

Actually (at least here in Colorado, and I suspect elsewhere), enrollments at colleges and universities are up. Many of the recently unemployed are using the opportunity (and the fairly generous extended unemployment benefits) to go back to school, either to prepare for a career change or just to make themselves more marketable.

I saw a story about this on the news not long ago. Higher education is apparently something of a counter-cyclical industry.
