Jobless rate tops 10 pct. for first time since ’83 – Yahoo! Finance:

Wait a minute, I thought the recession was over?  10.2% unemployment is the national total.  Michigan is still around 15% and California, Rhode Island and Nevada are all over 12%.  Somehow the Dakotas never felt this recession, at least in the unemployment numbers.  They are both around 4% unemployment and have been there for decades.
