Wow! Great Unemployment News!

Jobless claims fell last week, the government said Thursday, by more than analysts expected, dropping just below the benchmark 400,000 that signifies job-market weakness.

The Labor Department report said 399,000 people filed for benefits in the week ended Sept. 13, compared with a revised reading of 428,000 in the prior week.
Hey, America! We're 1000 shy of "weakness"! But we're down to only 399,000 new folks this week who won't vote for Team Crackhead next year.
