Industry insiders have probably already seen this floating around Facebook & Twitter. We've already received several emailed requests to post about it and it's only been published for about a day! Steve, hat tip to you for being the most concise :) It's an article in the NY Times from the Business Day section, by a journalist named David Segal who for some reason has taken pity on our profession and chosen to shed some light on things. Go ahead, click the link and read the story. I'll wait here.
OK. Was that not incredible? I don't know Mr. Segal, but he is to be commended. If you want to share your thanks or give him any additional information, you can email him - there's a link to do so directly from the NY Times website if you click on his name above where it's hotlinked.
I know you can't always believe what you read, even in the New York Times - but Mr. Segal is speaking the truth here, and our upcoming veterinary students and those aspiring to become veterinary students need to take a long look at this story. Here's the link again: High Debt and Falling Demand Trap New Vets.
Read it and weep. Then email it to your friends & family. Tweet about it. Share it on Facebook. We want the Times to take notice that this story has legs!
