An Uncertain Future After Jobless Benefits Expire

We've covered the story of Bud Meyers, one of Nevada's #99ers, before.

Now, the Associated Press has an interview with Bud.

More than two years after Meyers lost his job as a Las Vegas Strip bartender and nearly eight months after he exhausted his unemployment benefits, it has come to this: a careful inventory of a life's possessions and the hopeless embrace of a future as a middle-aged homeless man.

"I can't believe this is happening to my life," Meyers, 55, said on a recent afternoon, as he surveyed the one-bedroom apartment he must soon abandon. "It's a social holocaust."

The full story is posted on the AP wires.
