Recession? What recession?

This story absolutely killed me. Okay, to be more accurate, the first paragraph killed me, but it's a real humdinger:

"WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama's economic recovery program saved 935 jobs at the Southwest Georgia Community Action Council, an impressive success story for the stimulus plan. Trouble is, only 508 people work there."

Two thoughts: First, it's pretty bad when the state-run AP's getting sarcastic.

Second, at least we now have an idea how they figure up "jobs saved." And here I thought they were just throwing out numbers.
