When a missile is fired, money is spent. In the case of the Patriot, that's $560,000 every time one is launched, the cost of its sophisticated electronics package. Here is a sample of the cost of certain missiles deployed so far in the Persian Gulf War. Tomahawk: $1.35 million Surface-to-surface Anti-ground targets Program cost: $9.8 billion Harpoon: $1.12 million Air-to-surface Anti-ship Program cost: $3.7 billion Patriot: $500,000 Surface-to-air Anti-missile Program cost: $12.

Amid all the cost-cutting and tax increasing that the Los Angeles City Council is proposing, there's one more thing the council would like you to give up: meat. Just on Mondays. The council unanimously approved a resolution last week endorsing the international “Meatless Monday” campaign that began as a nonprofit initiative of the Monday Campaigns Inc. in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Center for a Livable Future. The city will encourage residents to abstain from meat and go vegetarian one day a week for health and environmental reasons. According to the campaign, cutting back on meat can reduce risks of cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
