I'd say it's pretty close to correct. Calling treasury bonds debt is akin to calling bank accounts "debts" of the bank. Which is technically true, but usually meaningless. Unless there's a run on the bank, like in "It's a Wonderful Life", and everyone calls in the debt at once.

And when people actually did that during the Depression, the government just declared an indefinite bank holiday and basically said no, we won't pay it.

The story of Billy Gibbons' (of ZZTop) 1959 Gibson Les Paul, known as Pearly Gates

"A Japanese gent" once offered Gibbons $5,000,000 for the guitar. He was turned down.

Gondolas in DC.

Quote:
If the District and Arlington were to decide to build a gondola to connect Georgetown to Rosslyn, it would be both a feasible and legal endeavor, according to a study released Thursday.

Leaders in both jurisdictions have floated the idea of building a cable-propelled transit system over the Potomac River to ease traffic on the Key Bridge and allow people to travel more quickly between Washington and Virginia.

Maybe true for the original spec, but modern VGA ports and cables can support resolutions at and above 1080p, though it's analog, and will not be a pixel-perfect image.

Open to Inspection
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the age of surveillance.

Quote:
By now it goes without saying or objection in most quarters of a once freedom-loving and democratic society that our lives, liberties, and pursuits of happiness are closely monitored by a paranoid surveillance apparatus possessed of the fond hopes and great expectations embedded in the fifteenth-century Spanish Inquisition. Our local fire departments donít grant permits for burnings at the stake, but our federal intelligence agencies (seventeen at last count, staffed by more than 100,000 inquisitors petty and grand) make no secret of their missionary zeal.
The growth of secret agencies and bumbling bureaucrats who have destroyed America over the last 99 years.
