Good News! Right?

Less people lost their jobs last month than the month before! Right? That's great, right?! I mean, right?!!

The monthly jobs report spurred a surge on Wall Street friday. Yes, the same report that said 20,000 people lost their jobs. I know that seems bad, but when analysts expect numbers in the 60-70k range, 20,000 isn't so bad anymore. Economically, I mean.

Still, remember when the jobs report didn't have a minus sign in the front of it? Yeah, me neither.
