Karla: Don't feel too bad. Nabisco downsized me despite excellent performance - my ninth appraisal started, "Karen did an excellent job fulfilling her objectives this year, but that is not what she will be measured on." After i was gone, they put a man ten years younger and paid him $10,000 more/year in my old job. They told my lawyer they would destroy me if I filed suit. Since the trauma of this had already launched me into a horrible menopause and post-traumatic Stress disorder, I am not sure how much worse they could have done. If I ever write that book, the opening line will be "It would have been easier to recover from being gang-raped by bikers at knifepoint, because THAT wouldn't have been personal".

This country is a myth when it comes to justice. Makes me want to move to Sweden (they do leading research in ARD at the Karolinska Institute). Best, Karen
