#3 Yeah, Gallup had it sharply up at 8.3%. Look for a quiet 'correction' in the next month or so.

#5 If you believe these numbers, I have a bridge in New York I will sell you.

Also note, there was a snippet on the internet that if the unemployment rate were computed in the same manner as it was in 1933, our current unemployment would exceed the 1933 rate of unemployment.

when you realize the employment index shows only 67% of the employable, able to work, are working, that should mean we have 33% unemployment? Or am I being too rational?
