More Cover Up

Thanks to DKos for this item. The Census Bureau's report on poverty and household incomes is going to be released on Friday this year. Usually the report is released on a Monday or Tuesday, but it looks like it may be a pretty bad report so the administration is hoping it gets swallowed in the black hole of weekend news. As Kos notes, last year's report was horrible, so this may mean we're in for more bad news:

Last year's reports showed that median
household income in 2001 registered the
first significant decline since 1991 and the
percentage of Americans living in poverty
rose from 11.3% to 11.7%, the first
increase in five years.
