// There's no mention of Chick-fil-A on the front pages of the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, and the Boston Globe. The front pages of USA Today, the Dallas Morning News, and the Houston Chronicle have small headlines about the restaurant, while Chick-fil-A's hometown paper, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, fits in a story below the fold under the heading, "Chick-fil-A Controversy." And the front pages of major news websites are quiet in their coverage as well. //

413-423 – Calls – Yesterday, I got a call from Christina, who said she was a conservative Christian and Republican that I had met at the Dream Center, that she supported traditional marriage, and she supported Chick-Fil-A – even though she was a lesbian with a long term partner. At least one emailer thought I was encouraging a "Christian lesbian relationship" and that I should have tried to "save" her. My boss got this complaint email about me (name redacted, obviously).
Today I listen to Frank Pastori fully encourage a Christian Lesbian relationship? Would that mean he also supports Fornication since sex outside of marriage is sin? Instead of taking the time to correctly share the truth with her and save her soul, he has now join the ranks of a Soul Loser. Or maybe he has been that way all along. People's lives hang in the balance and considering that he has been studied theology or been to seminary school giving such a ringing endorsement requires action from the KKLA Radio Station Executives. I have listened to ministry programs for years but now I will go directly to their websites and listen via internet on my smart phone. My wife and I also were once contributers but I clearly see no reason to resume supporting KKLA when our financial situation recovers. If KKLA should take action to correct this obvious misrepresentation of Christ you will have to email me for I will no longer listen or support the station.
(4:10, 2:00) Caller Christina.

• CNBC (8/3/2012) 'Real' Unemployment Rate Shows Far More Jobless.
While the national unemployment rate paints a grim picture, a look at individual states and their so-called real jobless rates becomes even more troubling.
The government's most widely publicized unemployment rate measures only those who are out of a job and currently looking for work. It does not count discouraged potential employees who have quit looking, nor those who are underemployed — wanting to work full-time but forced to work part-time.
For that count, the government releases a separate number called the "U-6," which provides a more complete tally of how many people really are out of work.
The numbers in some cases are startling.
Consider: Nevada's U-6 rate is 22.1 percent, up from just 7.6 percent in 2007. Economically troubled California has a 20.3 percent real rate, while Rhode Island is at 18.3 percent, more than double its 8.3 percent rate in 2007.
Those numbers compare especially unfavorably to the national rate, high in itself at 14.9 percent though off its record peak of 17.2 percent in October 2009.
Only three states — Nebraska (9.1 percent), South Dakota (8.6 percent) and North Dakota (6.1 percent) — have U-6 rates under 10 percent, according to research from RBC Capital Markets. //
