Until today, I didn't know that the Iraq War had cost my home county $4.1 billion dollars. I also did know that for that price, our county could have insured 2.5 million kids or hired 72,000 new public school teachers. The reason I know is because of a nifty website called Check it out, and next time your congressman votes to fund the war, calculate what your community is missing out on and let him or her know.
