  •  Nice misleading graph on the 55+ set (0+ / 0-)

    Wow, their part rate is rising!!  It is also still well below the current part rate and since there are many more in that 55+ demo each and every day, it means that they are still dragging down the overall part rate even as their own part rate rises.  You do get how math works right?

    You also realize that studies have been done that predicted part rates much like ours well ahead of this recession right?  

    I am not saying the recession has no impact.  But from what I have seen/read, the recessionary impacts are only about .5-.7%.
