unemployment rates

Have a looksee at the numbers: Unemployment state by state at CNN/Money

Barstow doesn't make the list (surprise!) but my hometown of Merced does. While it's rate is the highest of those listed in California at 16, that's down 0.3 from the month before and down 1.4 from the same period last year. I hope the rate goes down more if only for the sake of friends of mine still living there. And family too, although for some it won't matter much 'til they get out of jail. :oÞ
