In real news, UK is not sharing any more information about Manchester bombing with the US.  Trump can't keep his administration under control to contain leaks.  I guess the staff is following Trump's lead and spilling secrets.   

On the campaign trail, Trump promised that we would be respected again.  Trouble is we were already respected.   The rest of the world sees the clown for what he is.

Hahaha, what other countries like Trump better than Obama?

Russia and?

Suburbanites are the ones buying all the papers. They don't care that another taproom opened up on 4th or that more 8-story apartment buildings are proposed in Italian Village.

^the so-called 4th Circuit.

Seriously, that's what it calls itself.

Courts ruled against the Muslim ban again.  This time it was the 4th Circuit .

I am tired of all this winning.

That's odd that they would strictly highlight the suburban growth.

My gut suspicion is that a commercial real estate crash, of which perhaps we're already in, will put a multi-year damper on the rally.

It won't be as severe as the 2008 mortgage foreclosure crash, but if you look at all the accelerating list of empty storefronts and dead businesses nationwide, institutions that used to eat up a lot of real estate in malls and streets, you know something has to give.



Hipster parts of town and other areas of the core cities are raging so hard right now that almost everything else except very wealthy suburbs are having all the money and life sucked out of them. Unfortunately, a much smaller portion of The Market is invested in the urban growth than is invested in Applebee's, Sears and whatnot so The Market looks bleaker with these highly visible retail and restaurant stocks. So rather than Main St. vs. Wall St. it's more like 3rd Avenue Vs. Perimeter Drive.

So it is okay to get served food by them first, then detain them. FYI the people they detained are documented they just did not have the docs on them. Still detained them and hauled them away. ICE-Gestapo a-holes. Insanity.  https://t.co/vQEbPs4mRu

Nice report on the Cleveland MSA from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for April.  Using "adjusted" data, employment grew by 4,500 jobs while the workforce grew by 4,000, reducing the unemployment rate  by a tenth of a percent to 6.2%. Using raw data, employment grew by over 20,000 jobs, and the workl force grew by 10,000, reducing the unemployment rate to 5.4%. You can't pin too much on monthly numbers, but the trend is good. Let's see how Olivera Perkins turns this into BAD NEWS in the PD.

Using the adjusted numbers, the workforce is the highest it has been since January 2015. As an ex-Commerce Department employee , it's my feeling that the statistical model for Cleveland is a bit outdated and skews downward, since it is smoothed and modeled to follow longer-term trends. I believe Cleveland's long term downward move biases the adjustment in a way that shorter term numbers would not. The "real" current number probably lies somewhere above the adjusted data and closer to the raw numbers.
