I saw something just as depressing on WSJ the other day, too: Bar Raised for Law-Grad Jobs - http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704866204575224350917718446.html

The opener is the most depressing thing of all:

Fabian Ronisky thought he was on track last summer to become a high-powered corporate lawyer. He was an intern at a leading firm in Los Angeles, earning about $3,000 weekly. But the firm didn't offer him a permanent job.

So Mr. Ronisky, a 25-year-old student at Chicago's Northwestern University School of Law, spent the fall sending 50 resumes to law firms and government agencies, to no avail. Now, just days shy of graduation and with $150,000 of student loans, he plans to move back to his parents' home in San Diego and sell music and movies online.

FML. I mean, really.
