The true story of the national debt

Steve Conover, a good friend from days of yore in the sci.econ newsgroup, has a new blog up and running, Skeptical Optimist (great name!), on which he is compiling the story of the national debt. And he's got illustrations like he'll have to teach me to make someday.

It's already been picked up by Power Line and Econopundit, so you know it's a tale worth reading. Go see.

I haven't had a conversation with Steve about such things for a long time. As far as his take on the national debt goes, I'm full with him. As to those accruals ... we'll have to wait and see. I'm looking forward to renewing our former exchanges.
