Here is depressing but good publicity. All the essential figures related to US and State revenue and debt placed on one page as a debt clock with changing figures. Each has a source reference in case you want to check where the number is from. Just mouse-over a box and the source appears at the top of the page. It's depressing because it highlights how out of control Federal and State debt is. It keeps your attention because numbers are changing throughout the page constantly. If there is one criticism -- and it is a serious one -- the organization that has compiled this debt clock has not identified itself anywhere on the site. That jeopardizes the credibility of the numbers and of the clock.
