Numbers, numbers and more numbers

There are not enough wonks to go around to comment on all of this stuff.

Different datasets altogether, measuring some different things... but still two headlines in just the last day that may confuse: 

Pittsburgh Business Times:  Pittsburgh among top metros for per capita income growth

Trib:  Region's pay lags other areas


Unemployment is up to 7.8% in the region.  I won't repeat myself, but that now makes it 34 months well below the national unemployment rate.

Trib asked my thoughts on a slew of income data released today. It's really stuff that you can't squeeze into a news article.  Certainly not in the column inches those stingy editors give for stuff like this. 

Casino credit rating downgraded.... more on that later.
