Gettin' better

Not stellar, but heading in the right direction: "Jobless Rate falls to 5.6%"

The nation's unemployment rate dropped to 5.6 percent in January to the lowest level in more than two years as companies added just 112,000 new jobs -- fewer than expected but enough to keep alive hope for a turnaround in the struggling job market.

A summer burst of hiring would be just swell.
