We are always looking for metaphors to describe the mysterious qualities of the shroud. Well, here is an interesting turn around from William Tate in the American Thinker:
Gallup’s monthly unemployment survey of 30,000 adults is arguably the most comprehensive research done on the nation’s jobless situation, other than the Bureau of Labor Statistics study of 60,000 households. Gallup publishes its research without seasonal adjustments. The BLS’s version applies adjustments in an alchemic formula that’s more mysterious than the Shroud of Turin.
