Watch The U.S. Bleed Jobs

Slate has compiled a graphic that plots job losses on the county level; you can look at any month from January 2007 to October 2009 (county data lag behind U.S. data by a few months) and see when your specific county began to implode.

Or you can hit the play button and watch the country slowly turn from blue (job growth) to red. It gets rather alarming in early 2009, as you can likely imagine.
