If at first ...

Last week, the Fair 'n' Balanced Network took the novel step of reporting on small-scale MIDs in terms of their cost to taxpayers: closing in on $650 million for the Libya adventure.

The news is a lot better this week. We're down to $600 million! Indeed, you could be forgiven for a little Fox-style back-of-the-envelope calculating that might suggest -- at a gain of $50 million every six days -- this particular conflict is going to generate some $3 billion a year if we keep at it.
