The unemployment rate dropped from 8.3 percent to 8.1 percent. Whoopee!

My good cheer is sarcastic because the reason it dropped is nothing to celebrate. Quite the opposite: The unemployment rate only came down, according to today's Bureau of Labor Statistics report, because 368,000 people who'd been looking for jobs stopped looking. Lost hope. Quit the search in despair.
