Thursday Numbers

Don’t accept your dog’s admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful. – Ann Landers

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.

This week’s topics include Powerball, unemployment, recycling pays, Airbnb in Montana, mental illness & guns, Facebook Live & Tester, NFL scouting combine, Havre airport & Northwestern Energy, Kate Upton, and much more!
