Those of us who mock the conspiracy theorists are seen by the same
small minds as thinking the current system is perfect. Far be that
from the case. This article in the NYT does a pretty good job of
discussing concerns about economic data. It even includes a rational
discussion of how political pressures likely influence the data.
I'm sure there are those who will say that this article is pro-H-1B,
since it doesn't propose calculating the unemployment rate as the
number of people with Social Security numbers divided by the number of
people with jobs (or one of the other IB suggestions). But for those
who can read this article, it does a good job of identifying issues
that the intelligent reader needs to be aware of in using these
statistics. Those with limited cognitive ability will also find this
article interesting, since they will surely find one or two isolated
points that they can glom onto out of context.

"No - he gave me everything I ever wanted - a new car - new furniture - we
were about to buy a new house when I left."
"Why are you wanting a divorce?"
"I dunno . . . "
