In the news

This story was on USA Today's front page. Evidentially, all relivant information as to why members of the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) would rather be classified as AWOL then be shipped to Iraq can be said in a mere 437 words.

Also, contrary to claims by Bill O'Reily that viewers of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart are nothing more than "stoned slackers watching your dopey show every night," Nielsen Media Research has found that Jon Stewart's audience is more likely to have completed four years of college than people who watch "The O'Reilly Factor." Although no statistics were available for the number of viewers who watch The Daily Show stoned, the finding must remind us of our political task of pulling folks with "less education" (read: working class folks and folks in the South) away from the Savages and O'Reilys.
