    More positive spin on stinky numbers

    Last week's initial claims revised upward.
    This weeks numbers worse than expected. Lower than last week, but very close, showing that the dip to the low 300K's isn't sustainable, and not dropping to the 200K's you'd expect in a strong economy.
    Productivity way down.
    Labor costs way up.

    So what's the big headline on Yahoo Finance?

    JOBLESS CLAIMS FALL, TREND READING NEAR FIVE YEAR LOWS

    If North Korea were to drop a nuke on Seoul, I bet the headlines in the financial press would be "North Korea's Small Nuclear Arsenal Reduced, Less of a Threat Going Forward".

    EVERYTHING is good news, no matter what.
