Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

What the Hell? Friday -- Employment -- UP! Unemployment -- UP?!?

Read all about it.

Here at AB - with Graphs.

Here at Econospeak, with brief commentary.

Here at Plain Blog with political analysis.

Here at Washington Monthly, with the best Bush to Obama comparison - in Color!

How can both numbers rise at the same time?  More people entering (or re-entering) the work force results in a bigger pie, so both slices can grow at the same time.  

Mmmmmmm -- pie!

I like pie.

And that's the only good thing about your info today.

But don't let the MSM know.

Oh . . . wait . . . they know!

But they are not dwelling on it.


I wondered if anyone was actually going to deal with what this means for the long term when I heard it this morning.

Guess not.
