Excessive Misery. Just how bad is unemployment in this country? This is a low resolution version of the high-res slide show.
Iaman sent me the link to the Hi-res version. It looks pretty grim, and I blame it all on the kleptocrats in the Republican Party. Of course, the choice of colors kind of adds to the visceral impact: using light colors for low unemployment and dark colors for high unemployment. Things would look much better if they had switched the colors. My, look at all the happy people who don't have to go to work no more!
