Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” In case you’re a first-time visitor, this is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes sprinkled with sarcasm, humor, and bluntness.
This week’s topics include Trump’s fundraising, ransom to hackers, unemployment, U.S. Senator Susan Collins, Montana AFL-CIO convention, NBA Draft, Trump’s job approval rating, Bullock & the second debate, the congressional women’s softball game, Yellowstone, and much more!
