Illiteracy Study
A new study shows that about 11 million Americans are unable to read well enough to function properly in society. However, those people are apparently able to vote Republican and watch FOX News.

Strike Fallout
If there is a New York City subway strike, millions of workers will have to find another way to get to work, children will have to find another way to get to class, and homeless people will need to find another place to urinate.

Iraqi Turnout
Experts say the high turnout in the Iraqi elections is remarkable considering the bulked-up security, border closings, and the fact that there were no negative campaign ads on TV.

Torture Deal
The White House has finally agreed to Senator John McCain's bill banning torture. Between this deal and the leaking of agents' names to the press, the Bush administration is taking all the fun out of working at the CIA.

Bush Cheerleading
President Bush says he's confident that former House majority leader Tom DeLay is innocent of money-laundering charges, and he's offering strong support for several other top Republicans who have been indicted in the past year. Is it just me, or is it getting more and more clear that nobody ever told the President that there is no Santa Claus?

Contingency Plan
The House of Representatives decided this week to take $90 million from a pandemic flu preparedness program to pay for Viagra and other impotence drugs. The Congressmen figure that when everyone else dies from avian flu, they're going to need all the help they can get re-populating the Earth.
