Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Economy & Puppeteers


Hi Bob,

PA is no different on the economy front.  I guess we are fortunate that
the Philadelphia area is a hot spot for computer companies, so although
we have definitely seen a drop in usual hires, at least we have an 
industry in the area that is still decently strong.  We are trying to be 
pro-active, in a scale back of what we do.

We are actually having to consider cutting our Public series by half.
I realize that my company is not one individual, but I honestly don't
think it matters in this economy.  Even being an educationally based
company, I anticipate this being a very rough year, just based on the
lack luster start to the Holiday season bookings.

So, "Hang on to your hats, it's going to be a bumpy ride."

Best,

Liz
