Economy 'Somewhat' Better, Says Beige Book

Our wimpy recovery continues to get stronger, little by little, month by month. The latest good-ish news comes from the Beige Book, the latest economic report out from the Federal Reserve.

"Overall economic activity increased somewhat since the last report," it said.

It's the "somewhat" that gets you. I personally would have preferred "robustly," or "boldly," but I guess we'll have to take what we can get....
