I Forgot To Look For My Bush Boom

From Holden:

Poor neglected Bush Boom. I forgot to check the new jobless claims yesterday, which is no way to encourage My Bush Boom to show its face. For the record, the marvelous Bush Economy sent 334,000 Americans to the unemployment office last week.

In the week ending April 2, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 334,000, a decrease of 19,000 from the previous week’s revised figure of 353,000 [originally reported as 350,000]. The 4-week moving average was 336,500, a decrease of 250 from the previous week’s revised average of 336,750[originally reported as 336,000].
