National debt clock has to add a digit
FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS
When the nation’s deficit passed the $lO trillion mark, the thirteen digits
on the national debt clock weren’t enough. The digital clock’s dollar sign
had to be changed to a “1,” and a dollar sticker was placed beside it.
The clock was turned off for a couple years during the Clinton
administration as the debt lessened the clock couldn’t count backwards.
But now the successors of Seymour Durst, who created the clock in Times Square
about 20 years ago, are thinking of making a newer, bigger clock that can accom
modate more digits and more categories of debt.
The clock also shows debt per family, and it’s nearing SIOO,OOO. They might have
to convert the other dollar sign soon.
NOTED. Three hundred absentee ballots that
were sent to voters in a New York county had
presidential candidate Barack Obama’s last name
misspelled as “Osama.” The ballots went through
three rounds of copy editors. After the national
embarrassment, they’ll have to be reissued.
“We’re glad officials are working to cor
rect this error and we assume it won’t happen
again,” Obama spokesman Blake Zeff said.
