Unemployment never looked so good … or bad

We've read the news reports and watched the network broadcasts and listened to the politicians stress time and time again the need to put people to work.

But you've never seen anything that illustrates the unemployment crisis quite like this.

Our IT manager, Doug Shaner, sent this to me. It's called "The Geography of a Recession," and it uses data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to graphically illustrate -- on a county-by-county basis -- the nation's climbing unemployment rate.

Hit "Play" and prepare to be amazed ... and, quite possibly, depressed.
