    Great news...We are on a slow road to recovery. Lets keep it that way as we all know what a too fast recovery would mean to inflation.

    This is incorrect. The prior month was revised down from 162k to 88k (a net downward revision of 74k). Also, ADP canceled 365k private jobs created in 2012 YTD. Had ADP used its revised methodology, it would have missed 5 out of the past 7 Wall Street consensus estimates. Funny how the media doesn't focus much on this information.
