This is a Transaction I Would Approve

I note this factoid not out of partisanship -- though I am partisan as hell -- but because of my recent post concerning the design of the Eiffel Tower in the late nineteenth century.

Here goes.

The United States national debt of $9 trillion represents so much money that one could buy 28 life-size Eiffel Towers made of purest gold with that stack of IOUs. Click the London Times link and read for yourself here. That's about $321 billion per tower. Iraq already got theirs. I would also put one up in New Orleans and let the locals carve it up as needed.

Think of the 15% architectural design fees for one of those babies!
