President Reagan somehow took great comfort from last Friday's government report that showed the nation's jobless rate remained steady in May--at a hefty 6.3%. A White House spokesman with Reagan in Venice called the latest jobless rate "good unemployment news on the eve of the economic summit."

What budget and/or business knowledge does a high school history teacher possess? What payroll has candidate Ginsburg ever met? What has she done but remain in her lofty academic tower?
