The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Louisiana Unemployment

Some TV Station (KSLA) out in the Shreveport, Louisiana, area has an item on their website taking issue with Vice President Biden's contention that Governor Bobbie Jindal is clueless and so was his response to the President on Tuesday.

Here is Vice President Biden talking on the CBS Early Show on Wednesday:
But what I don't understand from Governor Jindal is what would he do?  In Louisiana, there's 400 people a day losing their jobs.  What's he doing?
Apparently the Vice President was fed the wrong statistics. According to Ms Patty Granier, with the Louisiana Workforce Commission:
In December, Louisiana was the only state in the nation besides the District of Columbia, according to the national press release, that added employment over the month
We know why DC adds jobs.  It is the growth of the Federal Government.  Every time I am down in Northern Virginia I am even more amazed at how new houses are springing up.

But, back to the topic, this point goes to Governor Jindal.  While there is no doubt the overall economy is shedding jobs, the Vice President appears to have gotten some bum data with regard to Louisiana.
