    7.9% Unemployment. Being that it's an average, there are many places where that number exceeds 10%... Good times indeed.

    .

    Higher growth than expected, previous numbers revised upward. Real estate prices increasing, manufacturing looking a little stronger.

    An uneven, slow recovery to be sure, but the damage was (and remains) historic. The partisan ideologues can play their games, but it's nice to at least see us heading in the right direction.
