I guess green shoots are where you find them. That is still a seriously ugly chart.

The pendulous pendulum of brain-drain in gigantic tide now shifts from the one Betz Cell of Bernanke's Brain back into the other side of the world.

I know I said I was outta here, but I couldn't resist checking in to see how all the perma-bears were doing after I read the following headlines this morning:

"Stocks extend gains after more positive data"

"Construction spending posts surprising gain"

"Manufacturing index up to 42.8 in May, beats expectations"

Of course, none of these came as a surprise to yours truly who's on the record as saying, "we're already out of the recession or are very, very close."

I hate veggies, but I LOVE those green shoots!
