THE GLAD GAME

SEATTLE, Washington – The question was inevitable in a room full of journalists. "How will the recession effect freelancers?"

True to form, I made Pollyanna noises. So far, the economic turbulence has been kind to independents. Every time a publication trims jobs, they fatten the roster of hired help.

But my fellow panelist won the blue ribbon. He grinned, quirked an eyebrow and said something to the tune of, "this industry has been in recession for several decades – the span of most careers. You're going to start worrying now?"
