An all-too-fitting reminder of the quantifiable size of America’s financial crisis…and the clock is still ticking!

Remember when gas stations ran out of the number “4” to put on their signage when prices skyrocketed? Well, there’s a similar predicament in Times Square.

The National Debt Clock has run out of spaces to display $10 trillion in red numerals.

By adding $100 billion to bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and $700 billion to bail out banks and the credit market, there’s no room for more zeroes.
