Nine Trillion and Counting

I heard on the news today that the national debt has crested the nine trillion dollar mark, a historic high. Nine trillion. I don’t doubt that much of it is going back (who knows when?) to the government of the People’s Republic of China.

It’s nice to know when one’s state owes thirty thousand dollars a citizen, I suppose.  Makes one less likely to put faith in the nation.
