Tonight on PBS: The national debt

Tonight PBS is airing a Frontline episode about the national debt called "Ten Trillion and Counting." In the DC area, it airs on WETA at 10:00 PM. In the Baltimore area, it airs on WMPT at 9:00 PM. Bubble Meter readers in other parts of the country should check their local listings. For those who miss it tonight, you will be able to watch it online.

According to the National Debt Clock, the U.S. national debt is actually $11 trillion. That's roughly $36,087 for every man, woman, and child in the United States, or $97,515 for every American household.
