My Presidential campaign will be attending this GAO event. And everyone who is interested in the future of the United States should also attend: Thursday Jan 31, 2008 at 10 AM

David Walker’s presentation in Tucson tomorrow Jan 31 is likely to be similar to his GAO presentation Jan 9, 2008, which is outlined on the internet as a collection of 35 images: 

Here is David Walker’s image # 19 in that set of 35 images.
