I can think of a lot of things I'd do with $1000

Fun fact of the day No. 1:

The Iraq war -- our grand adventure into toppling a dictator that had nothing to do with Sept. 11; a war which has distracted us from finding Osama bin Laden for five years; and a war which has pinned us down in the Middle East and weakened our posture in negotiations with the world's real nuclear and WMD threats -- has cost every single American over $1000 each. And growing.

Fun fact of the day No. 2: (unrelated, we swear!)

"CEOs of corporations with extensive defense contracts are getting paid about double what they made before Sept. 11, 2001.

CEOs of other large corporations - without big stakes in the war - have averaged pay gains of 6 percent during the same period, the study said."
