Tim and the Tin Titan


Is it bigger than a bread box?
Crunchweb.net has a nice little visualization of the 87 billion dollars that Bush wants to spend in Iraq. It is really mind boggling.

Even more interesting is this feature by TomPaine.com. I especially like the fact that $87b is more than 10 times the environmental protection budget.

They can always find money when it's something they really care about. But when it's for the environment, education or medical care? "Ooooooh sorry, we just gave or last dime to that guy over there..."
