Well, it's all about Afghanistan today. Let's first talk about money. We post a rolling total here that took a significant jump a ways back, primarily because the President decided to put it on the books instead of covering up the true costs. War is expensive and wasteful, but sometimes you run across a story that just makes you shake your head. Quick question - we all drive cars, do you lease or own?
