You mean I've recently ploughed through The Iliad for nothing!

Along with Jon Stewart, one of my favorite news sources. I have their Our Dumb Century: The Onion Presents 100 Years of Headlines from America's Finest News Source. One of my favorite days is January 21 1981 (day after Reagan was inaugurated as president of the U.S.) which had:
Reagan May have Been Elected, Doesn't Recall

Hostages Released
Regan Urges American People Not to Put Two and Two Together

Reagan Promises Less Bureaucratic Shadow Government
They also put out one of my all time favorite Youtube videos on how to cyberstalk your child at college. I follow their advice religiously. ;)
