Rules are here. Possible comment fodder may follow later. Other topics are also fair game.




  1. Initial jobless claims once again benefited mightily from seasoning. This past week’s 330K (with no adjustment of the prior week’s 335K) was based on an unseasoned 437K. Last year’s seasoned 372K was based on an unseasoned 417K.

    And here I thought the election was over.
