Debt box lacking

Dear Editor:

Your front page of each issue always contains a boxed notice giving the current national debt as well as each individual’s so-called share of that debt. I’m no economist, but I find this disturbing, as it provides no explanation for the debt, and might even worry people that they or their descendants could be required to fork over their “share.”

Please, in the future, clarify what the national debt and debt ceiling actually are — and what they are not.
