I talked to a "green shoot"

Everyone is looking for "green shoots"....signs that our dreary economy is starting to turn around. Well, I spoke with one over a beer a few hours ago.

I was enjoying a beer on the patio of the Pearl St. Pub on a sunny day in Boulder, and I was talking casually with a guy doing the same thing. He installs tile for a living, and said he was expecting to be laid off, but that business has picked up recently, so he is not going to be laid off.

Hey, it ain't much, but it's something.
