A native Nebraskan paralyzed from the chest down by a drunken driver in Omaha started a new job this week — senior economist for the President's Council of Economic Advisors.
“I hope it's not the pinnacle of my career, but it's certainly a high point,” said Douglas Kruse, 54. “I'll be able to work on economic policy for the president of the United States, and that will provide me a lifetime of lessons to share with my students.”
