So how cheap is this beer we're talking? Some of it isn't all that bad,
unless we're talking gas-or-rama vs small breweries. In that case, brew your
own; don't you already do that, Al?

Joking aside, I feel your concern. I hope your myriad endeavors will see you
through this rough spot, even if you have to opt for lower paying gigs. The
market does seem to have picked up somewhat, esp if you have lots of skills
and are willing to eat dirt.

That said, your contract's methods stink. Ah, so much for money.
