Posted at 5:52 PM on July 15, 2009 by Jeff Horwich

Following up on people who answered our recent question about what signs they're looking for to feel confident the recovery is underway. Among the most interesting:

* A woman looking for worck, but not finding the write openings (sic)
* A guy who reported a lack of "serious customer commitment to production orders, forecasts, and schedules" (What???)

Sanden's out getting tape from the cat lady at the moment, but I called the second two this afternoon...
