CINCINNATI (TDB) -- The National Priorities Project has built a meter that is constantly counting the financial cost of the War in Iraq. The meter runs non-stop, and a few moments ago pegged Ohio's share of expenses at $15,690,248,670. Cincinnati's share was closing in on $420 million; Dayton, $154 million; Toledo, $344 million; Youngstown, $67 million.
Other Ohio cities are on the meter, too. It is worth watching the meter rise. And while you were reading this, the numbers have climbed.
