Make sure you click the auto-play at the top right.  While I realize that we need a lot of things taken care of in this country, it seems to me jobs would be a top priority.  Look  at unemployment in January ’08 and where it is today.  Oh, I know, it must be the other guy’s fault.  Even though it’s two years later.  🙂

I’m just sayin….

And aren’t those same dark counties the same counties with housing problems?  Do you think maybe, just maybe, there is a direct correlation between the ability to earn income and the ability to afford your home?
