Not enough numbers for debt

October 9, 2008

Apparently the National Debt Clock in NYC has run out of space for digits, so they have gotten rid of the dollar sign to make room.  Anyone else feel a little uncomfortable about this?  Does this mean that since the the dollar sign is gone, we can make it any currency we want? If so I’d suggest the Somali Shilling – 10 trillion Somali shillings is only $7,305,262,094.  That’s a lot better.
