Ted Rall cartoon: Unemployment and California's new normal

August 24, 2011 |  4:42 pm

Unemployment in California rose to 12% in July, making it the second-highest unemployment rate in the nation after Nevada. Gulp. Combine that with the possibility that "green" jobs may never pan out and that California is no longer the country's leader in creating new businesses, but rather the loser, and it's hard not to feel defeated. Tell me you haven't gotten out of the house to cheer up, only to end up in a conversation just like this one illustrated by cartoonist Ted Rall:
