    That's certainly not good news. I wonder what the retail numbers will look like around the holidays. Hopefully, things will turn around sooner rather than later. Financial problems can really effect families, it's not good.

    The finances of states lag the economy in general ... it's not surprising at all. This works in reverse also ... states were not laying off people when the economy went south. They hung on to their employees - rather foolishly because they had to know they would not be spared.
