    But that will only be due to the bad weather!

    Of course. And then in a couple weeks the weather will warm up and they will all be rehired at the resorts as pool attendants.

    jml6m. This is not really "bad" news. It's rather like taking one's temperature and discovering it to be 98.6. Today, these numbers are just the norm in the current economy, IMHO. I only look at them to confirm that some disaster hasn't occurred that has not already been reflected in 100 other places 6 days earlier.
