Golden Whitman County

Here is a link to a map titled The Decline: The Geography of a Recession. It animates the unemployment rates from January 2007 to October 2009. Whitman County's unemployment rate has virtually remained unchanged. I am not suggesting that many lives have not been touched, I know they have, but we seem rather insulated from the larger picture this map is showing.

Funny how there are little pockets across the country that really haven't been hit hard.....and others that have.
