Well, losing my job to outsourcing has certainly transformed my life, but I 
wouldn't exactly describe it as 'uplifting'.  I still haven't found a new 
job after nearly thirteen months.  My unemployment benefits ran out a month 
ago.  But, hey, it's nice to know that Friedman finds it all so 'uplifiting'.
