Better Economic Signs

In news the clueless media will generally ignore, to the great relief of Rethugs rooting against an American recovery, economic signs continue to improve. Unemployment claims, on a 4-week moving average, dropped to a 3 1/2 year low. Pending sales of previously-owned homes were up. And there's better manufacturing data to boot.

No doubt this has not been, nor will it be, a recovery without hitches. But so far, slow steady progress is better than one could expect, given the concerted efforts of Rethuglicans to sabotage economic growth over the past 2 1/2 years.
