Mapping Opportunity

Dude,

If there ever was an opportunity to get something publish for traction, it's here:

Any other takers?  Ben.  I know you can handle this!

  1. Outrageous! I read the fine print about where the heck these numbers came from and here is what I found:

    "These estimates were based largely on the work of Mark Zandi of economy.com. The original estimates were scaled to reflect the size of the final conference bill."

    Now, I don't know what the "original estimates" were, but that kind of thinking is worse than just wrong. It is totally misleading. Why not just double those estimates again and then you'll get twice the number of jobs...also not that it didn't say jobs created, but jobs created AND saved, which means that the number is total vaporstats.
