When I added the link, our debt was $9.1 trillion.
I felt comfortable at that time "hard-coding" my name for the link as "$9.1 TRILLION +++".
Today I had to change the name of the link.
It's amazing to me, too, because I was talking to a guy at work the other day and he really does not believe that this debt belongs to him. He feels like he didn't sign a paper to borrow it, so it isn't his. That kind of blows me away, because if you use the Census Bureau's number for the population of the United States, every individual in the country owes $30,000. That's $100,000 per family.
Am I the only one who thinks this is scary?

Aunt Crazy, Jackie and Cezarina
Yesterday I went up to Northern VA for the afternoon and had lunch with some ladies I worked with at the Census Bureau 12 years ago! (The gentlemen were supposed to show up, but Keith has 2 children under 3 and Rufus has a daughter who is a Wizards cheerleader, so he bailed on us and headed to the game!) It was great catching up with Jackie and Cezarina.
