I found this story from the NY Times to be truly inspirational," A Drug That Wakes the Near Dead " and I wanted to share it with This Just In readers.

The NY Times reports good news,"Jobless Rate Dips to Lowest Level in More Than 2 Years ". Of course, most of the reduction in the unemployment rate is due to over 300,000 people giving up on looking for work. That is an intentional flaw in the governments equation for calculating the unemployment rate. The real unemployment rate is much higher.
