Good morning, Freepers and DUers alike. It is time once again for the weekly unemployment insurance claims report.

Here for your viewing pleasure are this week's data, brought to you as a nonpartisan public service. This is just one example of the good work your civil servants are performing for you.

The numbers are down 2,000 this week, but they are still over 400,000.

(By the way, how can I resize this graphic? I did shrink it and move it to Flickr, but pictures stored at Flickr are not in the gif or jpg format. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks.)
