Spotted: CSI Spawns a Cottage Industry
Remember those old TV ads starring Sally Struthers and touting home schooling for trades like gun repair?
Oh, how 1980s of you. These days, via ads on the MTA buses, I notice that the hot new jobs are in the "CSI" field. (See above.) Yes, thanks to good ol' TV, these profit-driven trade schools are churning out a generation of wannabe Marg Helgenbergers and David Carusos. Apparently crime scene investigation is a growth industry?
