Math is hard.

The Globe business and tech writers try to piece together what an economic recovery would look like in the region. It’s not a pretty picture. And David J. Lynch, in the Washington Post, looks at the implications of the massive debt load we’re accumulating as a nation. Again, not pretty.

I was looking forward to Richard II. Alas and alack.
