    Yep. Subcontracted through a company called Belcan.

    Some say the economy is in a recession. Not my economy!

    Sounds fun. If you don't have a chick or family, I'd follow the money and new work experience.

    D'oh. I'm going to look at apartments in the Detroit area this weekend, but I'll send you my resume anyway.
