US public debt outstanding

I enjoyed Rolfe Winkler's posts.  He used to post for Reuters before he moved to WSJ. One such post is this - reproduced below (without Rolfe's permission). Hope he doesn't have an issue.

$6 trillion: February 28, 2002
$7 trillion: January 15, 2004 (22.5 months)
$8 trillion: October 20, 2005 (21 months)
$9 trillion: August 31, 2007 (22 months)
$10 trillion: September 30, 2008 (13 months)
$11 trillion: March 16, 2009 (5.5 months)
$12 trillion: November 16, 2009 (8 months)
$13 trillion: May-June 2010 (6-7 months)



That is where he left it.
$14 trillion: January 2011 (6 months)


I hope I can keep updating this post.
