Well, you may or may not know about Harper’s Index – if you don’t – here’s a description from the Harper’s Magazine site:
“Each month, the Harper’s Index provides a statistical snapshot of the world’s economic, political, and cultural climate. The Harper’s Index is published to Harpers.org one month after print publication.”
So why do I mention it? Well, I just found this little nugget over there – in the September 2004 Index:
“Funds allocated for Iraq’s water programs to be spent on U.S. embassy operating costs : $85,500,000”
Yup. More selfless Iraqi Reconstruction.
Thank God For America.
