Yeah, the recession was bad, but not as bad in Knox

This .gif supports a thought I’ve heard a couple of times.

Back in 2008 when the bottom fell out and kicked off some bad economic times, it hit Knox County too, but not as badly as other places (from the WaPo’s Reid Wilson) – strictly speaking in terms of unemployment. Worth checking out. You can see that Knox, as the areas around it grow black and fade back to the green, doesn’t really make that turn toward the ultra high joblessness as other areas, even bordering counties.
