"It's not personal", we were told when a few good friends were laid off this week at work. It will be personal to me Monday morning when I walk by one friend's empty cubicle. I will miss his kind and funny ways. It occurred to me that life is strangely divided between the time before the film You've Got Mail was made and the time after. It's not surprising that 9/11 was just a few short years later. It's a Mason Dixon line - a great divide where we crossed over from hope and gentleness to something else.
