Headline Unreality

Just came across this from KELO. The headline and first phrase of the story are as follows:

Report Shows Sioux Falls In Good Shape

The city of Sioux Falls is $321 million in debt . . .

Is it me, or is one of these things not like the other? I realize the article continues and tells us that compared with other cities in the region, Sioux Falls is holding less debt and has a better probability of repaying it, but still–given the current state of the economy– it would seem as though nearly one third of a billion dollars is significant indebtedness.

I also understand that because I am debt averse, others may not be.
