Figure has ballooned to about $10.2 trillion; new clock will go up in 2009
In a sign of the times, the National Debt Clock, shown on Oct. 9 in New York, has run out of digits. The "1" from has been moved left to the space once occupied solely by the digital dollar sign. A non-digital, improvised dollar sign has been pasted next to the "1."
The idea behind this blog is to post stories, comments, essays and images - with a little humor, glamour and spirit mixed in - that inform our perceptions and bring to life the extraordinary day-to-day events in this historic election. Hopefully some of what you see on Chill Baby, Chill will inspire you to get involved, so together, on our common ground, we can make some difference and maybe, just maybe, change the country. I invite everyone to participate with comments, questions and any thoughts in general.
If you'd like me to post something written by you or someone else, please send the piece to firstname.lastname@example.org.
