Unemployment Rises to 8.5%. . . and Then There's the Bad News
The economy keeps on chug, chug, chugging along at a poky, yet steadily poky, pace.

-- The NYTimes does a poignant interview with three folks in Columbia, SC who have lost jobs in this recession, and what they are doing to make ends meet while looking for work.
-- In the "duh" column, the WaPo reports that new polling shows Americans are worried about the recession. Color me shocked.
