There are times when I'd like to share something with you but my Voice in the Garden site does not seem the appropriate place, thus, this blog.

There are experiences, thoughts, views... and for anyone lurking/waiting to pounce (as has occurred on several occasions), please do not attempt to turn what I post into a political statement. This is NOT a political site, but IS about occurrences, reality, and personal opinion concerning what I see in the world around me and my family. There are many excellent writers whose works "speak" to me, and I shall include some of them. At times it may be
something I think you would enjoy or simply whatever ails you (me).

C-Span: BLS and "Green" Jobs Report

Witnesses testified on the monthly jobs reports released by the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics. The first panel focused on the methodology of the report's release, in which news organizations and others are allowed to see the monthly jobs report half-an-hour ahead of time in what is known as a "lock-up" session at the Labor Department building. 

A second panel (featured here) also focused on "green" jobs, with Chairman Darrell Issa accusing the Labor Department of inflating the numbers it had reported for that sector of the economy..
