My letter to Harper's

Dear Sir or Madame,

The HARPER'S WEEKLY email of January 14, 2003 ends with the phrase: Venezuela was suffering from a critical shortage of beer. The past tense of this sentence is wrong. Venezuela is suffering from a critical shortage of beer. Coke, gas, potato chips, flour, and other basic necessities are also next to impossible to find. Of course, all other shortages pale compared to the importance of beer in the basic task of avoiding thinking about the reality of a country that is sinking... fast...

Cordially,
Alfredo Octavio

It's official: I'm unemployed. It is the first time in my life, or at least the first time since 1981 (when I was 19) that I do not have something to do and a stable income... I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I could go back to being a researcher in Math. I could try to do consulting, or I could just try to get another job (preferably outside Venezuela)... It's going to be tough, but I guess the first thing is not to despair. I would dedicate a couple of weeks to talking with people to see what options they see for me... I'll keep you posted...
