• Maybe the housing market isn’t that bad now. Or maybe it is artificially inflated due to the tax credit.

• The state unemployment computer system stinks. The system is delaying checks because it is having problems with the extension of benefits.

• With Paul Krekorian looking good for his City Council seat, the race to take his Assembly seat is off and running.  Mike Gatto is claiming that he has already banked $200K for the race.
