Ode Magazine!

I recommend that everyone buy the January-February issue of Ode magazine, and then, I won't have to type so much here. I am going to assume you are buying it.

That said, I would like to point out that according to World Watch magazine, the US spent 455.3 billion dollars in 2004 on military expenditures. The US spent 47% of what was spent in the world on military expenses that year. Combined international military expenses totalled $1.04 billion U.S. in 2004. "While millions of people around the world have to make do on less than two dollars a day, governments are spending an average of $162 U.S. per world citizen each day on weapons and soldiers."

Now, that makes no sense, or dollars either.
