Dear lord, it really is a Depression: At this rate, we’ll lose 6 billion jobs this year. Or rather 5,997,000,000, thanks to those 3 million the stimulus is going to “save or create.” Assuming, of course, it passes, which is suddenly less certain than it used to be.

Don’t be too hard on Nancy for this little goof. When you’re burning through cash by the trillions, it’s easy to overlook the difference between penny-ante concepts like “thousand” and “million.” Exit question: Which of the 57 states will be hit hardest by the downturn?
