Labor Day 2007

On this Labor Day, it is worthwhile to reflect on where we have been.
This past year has seen the stock market reached past the 14,000 mark on the Dow.
The unemployment rate is at an all time low of 4.6%.
Housing ownership is at an all time high across all demographics.
The inflation rate is low by historic standards.
Gas prices are falling below $3.00 a gallon.
The federal deficit is trending downwards.
Just announced this morning, North Korea is promising to give up its nuclear program.
Our President, George W. Bush is in Iraq (on the ground) and providing encouragement to our troops. The surge seems to be working after 6 months...
Almost 6 years post 9/11/2001, we have not been attacked again on the homeland.

What does the NYT choose to focus on?
