    A wait job with good insurance? Unemployed engineering and microbiology PhDs? What were you smoking while working on “Alpha House,” GT?
    Stop waiting for post-doc grants and get jobs in the private sector that you spent years training for.

    Wait Job? What the heck is a “wait job”?

    I’m guessing she’s not referencing programming…

    And seriously…
    LWP is right.

    Engineering and Microbiology PhD’s don’t sit around unable to get a job unless there is something wrong with them.

    That’s for English Majors ;P

    She’s a waitress. What did you think it meant?

    We waited four months for a dumb story line like this? Looks like Doonesbury has finally jumped the shark.

    Those that can, create. Those that can’t, whine and b!tch about those that can.

    people here so far be dumb – and ignorant of the news. the strip accurately depicts our present day upside down reagan structured economy. merit often gets one nothing. being a sleazoid dipsh1t banker or trader without ethics or a clue about humanity, on the other hand, gets one amazing tax preferences and get-out-of-jail-free status for life. as a country we are investing in nothing of value – hence the unutilized education of (and predicament of) wait staff and babysitters.

    So will these two be BFF or bite each other?

    Do you or LWP have data to back that up?

    Ignorant of the news? But they watch Fox— Oh, right.

    This strip accurately depicts our present offshore obama structured economy, where H1B workers come to this country and take the jobs of qualified American workers.

    Restaurant people have not had health insurance in the past. That should be changing however.

    Either of their professions are excellent! Of course, neither of them are willing to start their careers at less than six figures – and they want tenure conferred because of their academic prowess.
