Another one of our deficits is shrinking.
I dunno, but I'm guessing that, somehow, Bush and a few others on the starboard side of the nation (and, who knows? maybe even Wal-Mart, but don't quote me on that one) might have something to do with this... and I'm thinking this might actually be another good thing, along with the drop in US unemployment, the continued housing boom (stop calling it a "bubble". At worst, it's a scattered rash of blisters), the increased productivity nationwide, and that not-so-little dip in the escalating national debt.
Of course, I have no doctorate in leftwing ideologue politics or economics from Berkeley, so I may be wrong.
