Smokin' Economy

Buried in the backpages of the newspapers today was reports of the July-September (third quarter) growth of the economy up 3.8% after rising 3.3% in the second quarter (April-June).

Now I realize news is the unexpected and skews toward the bad things that happened. But after weeks of daily pounding of the nation by news of investigations, a withdrawn nomination, deaths in Iraq, rising gasoline prices, and hurricane, hurricane, hurricane, the resilliency of the economy is unusually good news misplaced on the back pages.
