million man army

BigLizards has a great mathematical breakdown of the MSM coverage of military recruiting. (HT: Powerline) I hate it when the facts get in the way of a good story.

The mind of the mathematician suddenly registers something it likes: numbers! We have a million men; we want one million and thirty thousand; maybe as high as one million and fifty thousand. A quick calculation: so our force is just too small -- we desperately need to increase it... by 3% to 5%.

I love it that people who didn't sleep through math class now have an outlet to publish what the MSM missed in the haze that was math class to most of them!!! :-)

Go read the whole thing.
