Whatchu Talkin' 'Bout?

So we have 14 freakin' meeellion folks out of work, the last week of October saw another 397,000 new unemployment claims and only 80,000 new jobs were created. Yet the .gov and news outlets say that unemployment dropped from 9.1 percent to 9 percent. Now I'm not a mathmatical wizard but it seems to me these numbers don't add up. By the way that 397K is only the 2nd time in 5 months that the number has been below 400K. Forgive me for being pessimistic but something doesn't smell right....
