    I like your optimism and hope you are right. My first question when I saw the numbers is, “Is the increase in FTE workers an increase in actual ‘full-time’ employees, or is it an increase in part-time positions?”

    Great question; we should ask the RTD editors. Either way I’m just happy more folks are getting back to work.

    Gayle ~ Just reaching out to you ole buddy. Glad to hear about the job uptick in the Richmond area. Maybe it’ll catch on nationwide.

    All is well up here in Bean Town. Sending my love to you and family.
