Good Jobs Gone and Dream

Eli Lilly has a half-built factory just outside Manassas and was bringing 350 good-paying jobs into the area. They announced today that they're going to tear down what they have and sell the site, expand their factory in Sesto, Italy, and lay off workers at another factory. This is a big blow to the city.

I had the hotel dream last night -- I was traveling with a group in a bus and one morning, my alarm didn't go off and just as I got up, I saw the bus leaving. I got my stuff together and then got lost in the hotel for hours trying to find the lobby. I eventually found a different way out and went looking for a rental car place.
