Just in case you've been sleeping too soundly lately, here's a remedy: exchange counting sheep for counting the national debt of the United States, in real-time. There's a new website that features running tallies of various aspects of our nation's debt. Not only does it track the many liabilities, it also shows the inflow of revenue (which is dwarfed by the outflow).

A report on CNBC says that http://www.USDebtClock.org "was created by a group that says it is 'nonpartisan' but wouldn't comment for this article because it likes to maintain the anonymity of its members 'to distance ourselves from outside influence or political pressure.'" Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury Department has its own debt clock which is nowhere near as comprehensive.
