    Is it up or down???? I dont mind the press lieing to me..kinda expect it...but would they please make up their mind what the lie is. These 2 articals appeared on the front page and money section on same day, same paper (Florida Today):
    (1)"Brevard jobless rate drops in July"
    (2) "Claims for jobless benefit in Brevard rise in July "

    both showed on the web site's front page......... 2 very diffrent versions of the employment situation...I posted the first 2 paragraphs of both.

    Claims for jobless benefit in Brevard rise in July

    By Scott Blake
    FLORIDA TODAY

    Initial claims for unemployment benefits in Brevard County hit a high for the year in July, as 1,611 people applied to the state for jobless aid.

    With few jobs being created, some people also are running out of such benefits.

  6. I know the up-standing and reliable news media wouldn't make anything up. I just know they would print and broadcast dull everyday truth with no hope of revenue.

    And........I know the latest report on Rosie O sporting a new butch haircut is all true.

    I used to gag when I saw a pic of Rosie....now I up-chuck.....fer sure....yepper.
