Never Understood How There Can Be A "Jobless Recovery"...

when there is high unemployment. Because then it's not REALLY a "recovery", is it?

The highest unemployment in the U.S. right now is in Michigan, Nevada, Rhode Island, and California. The news today is that California hit 12.2 % in August, setting another record. "New postwar high!" What war are they talking about...WWII?

I'm Too Sick To Write...So Here's A Pointer To Something Worth Reading :)

Ugh, I hate having a chest cold-thing when it's summer weather...AND a holiday weekend!

The only advantage is that I have the chills while everyone is complaining of the heat.

Anyway, this interesting piece reminds me of why I don't always feel like doing any writing in public when I'm not feeling well...at least, not with so many really pissed-off people around to send me hate mail.

It's not even very creative hate mail.

On another subject, if you're in the US or from the US, Happy Labor Day weekend!

Ok, wages have been flatlined for years now and jobs have been sliced and outsourced to death and unemployment hit a 26-year high today I think but: do NOT let me spoil the party, since I'm just jealous that I'm stuck in bed!

The last rays of the summer sun are starting to vanish... Enjoy them while they are there.

An undergrad economics degree was all I could afford. Alas and alack, it did not guarantee me regular meals.
