Good Jobs News, At Least

Better-than-expected job growth last month… and in the private sector, too (154,000 private-sector jobs in July, with employment growth in healthcare, retail and manufacturing, even as the government sector cut 37,000 jobs).  Unemployment droped from 9.2 to 9.1%.

Not out of the woods by a long shot, but at least it was positive news.
