The economic wallahs tell us that the economy is getting better -- sort of. Unless you're reading them on the days when they're in a bad mood, and they're telling us the opposite--or, of course, unless you're one of those poor souls still trying to find work after a layoff or graduation. Then, the economy really does still pretty much stink. Meanwhile, since psychology plays a big role in this glass-half-empty/half-full scenario (I don't think anybody's saying it's any better than half full--at best), I'm always on the look-out for the good news.
