Enough drops, and you've got a flood

March 3, 2011 - Rob Weaver
I just read that Patricia Harrison, president of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, said $430 million — the amount that would be saved by not funding her outfit — is so small "it's not going to make one iota's difference in the deficit."

Harrison is correct. Just not in the way she intended.

That statement doesn’t mean $430 million is an inconsequential, insignificant amount of money.

Instead, it’s an indictment of the deficit, which now is so large it makes nearly a half-billion dollars seem small in comparison.

And next to the national debt, it’s a drop in the bucket. But one of these days, such a drop will be the one that drowns us in debt.
