fuzzy math?

January 29, 2002

Today, President Bush announced $50 million in credit for private investment in Afghanistan to help train its own police force and military. [NYT]. As a point of comparison, last week, Mariah Carey got a $21 million buyout of her contract by EMI. In total, she received $49 million from Virgin/EMI. [MTV] Do I need to point out that Maria Carey is a soprano while Afghanistan is an entire country?
