in case you were looking to get away from overly cheerful news

Slate magazine has just produced an interactive mapping of where jobs – and how many jobs – are being lost in this recession. There are blue dots (job gains – and yes, there are some) and red dots. 

Sigh – watch the red areas bloom.

What’s interesting is to see how *early* this all started – and while some of the worst hit areas are predictable, I suspect you’ll find some of the ‘blooms’ surprising.
