How NOT to draw cost curves 

I notice a headline that the Iraq war is costing $100,000 per minute. Suppose we asked how much per minute Microsoft spends? The answer would be north of $50,000. So, what would it mean if the headline said "Iraq war costs less than twice as much to operate per day as Microsoft"?

Probably means a massive takeover of the MSM by people who can do math.
