This week, we're celebrating Labor Day.  There's no better time to take a look at work and employment market.

Lucky for us, we have some jobs data to digest.  Unlucky for us: the data came in worse than expected. We take a look at the numbers say and detail what they mean for the overall labor picture.

We also take some time to acknowledge the tragedy in Houston and along the Gulf Coast.  We look at the potential economic impact of the disaster, from gas prices to overall GDP impact.

And as always, we send our consultants to review some of the more unusual departments on Wall Street...

We've got some tales of accidental gouging in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.  We've got a loss in the legal battle to watch movies without sex or violence.  We've got a wall coming down in Westeros, but one maybe going up in Arizona.
And we've got some controversy about who is going to replace the White Supremacist on our $20 bill.
