U.S. military presence (& thus costs to American taxpayers) 2008

Noted for future reference & more detailed reading:

Mother Jones' year-long project to investigate U.S. military activity around the globe

Map of Pentagon-reported U.S. troop presence (see notes for background details, but note that they may not provide context such as explaining how Indonesia's stated 26 troops manage three facilities totaling 49,122 square feet).

Useful journalism, both for the facts collected and the questions they raise.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
