Sacked by the "downturn", an unemployed architect touring the country in a bus...

I used to live in New York City. I designed homes for the tycoons of Wall Street; Park Avenue, Scarsdale, Greenwich. It was great fun. And, after years of saving up for a down payment, I was just about to buy my own little place in Fleetwood, half an hour north of the city, when the economy fell apart. Architects are like canaries in a coal mine when the economy slows, and true to form, there were massive layoffs in firms all over the country. Devastation of the profession. So, I decided to try to find something else to do for a while. I bought a 23' school bus and I'm on the road to see if I can figure out what that might be.

What can I say?  There is relentless merchandising of the event at every turn, mostly tongue in cheek, but there are believers here, too.  The Town Hall has a memorial at the beginning of it's entry walk, two granite tablets emblazoned with the Ten Commandments, so I guess in Roswell, if it's far fetched, they go with it ;-)
