    Huge buffer zone protects us from Islamohordes

    Cultural suicide via digitalization
      Compact discs won't skip. They'll play even if you scratch them. Unless you break them or set them on fire, they'll last forever.

      Note to union negotiators: The government has lots of money. They're spending it on war.

    Americans don't, and shouldn't, care about the war on terror
      Do Americans worry about terrorism? Seventy-nine percent of Americans told the most recent CNN survey of national concerns that they did. They considered the fight against terrorists "very important"--more so than Iraq, the economy, immigration or gas prices. But it isn't true.
