Really cool regional jobs graph

Here is a cool visual of the regional disparities in job growth/loss (ht, hubby!). The data are listed by metropolitan area, not by state (I would rather see it by state). Some cool things can be seen here. Look at California in April 2008: Northern California - San Jose and San Francisco - was still adding jobs, while Southern California - LA and Riverside, housing bubble central - was destroying jobs.

BTW: you can see the BLS list of metropolitan areas here.
