This is about your owing money, lots of it. According to our city comptroller, you are in debt to the tune of seventy-seven hundred dollars. That's your share of New York City's debt. Your share of New York State is three thousand. Our state comptroller says; it's like somebody ran up your credit card and gave you the bill. But according to the NEW YORK TIMES, your share of federal debt is over one-hundred thousand dollars. Yet, no need to stay up all night worrying. There's a story about a fellow pacing all night. His wife asks him, "What's wrong?" He says I owe Williams ten-thousand dollars and I don't have it. She replies: "You don't have it. So come back to bed. Let Williams worry."
