Man, what is it with people and billboards? It seems like every couple of months, someone commandeers one to broadcast his or her personal needs all over their communities. This time it's Mark Hauer, a Wisconsin guy who's looking for work . Hauer "hasn't worked in six months" (that doesn't really set him apart, of course), and his work experience includes "sales, service, production and procurement management." More specifically, it includes "assisting U.S. troops in Iraq for a contractor in a detainee camp," which sounds vague and ominous enough to scare a few employers away right off the bat. Perhaps Hauer, who seems like a nice enough guy, should spend a few months as a Volunteer Kitten Hugger or something to lighten up his image. He can add pictures to his Web site, while he's at it .
