Solutions are out there for all of our problems if we know where to look. The joke potential remains incredible.

The United States of America (1.12.2005)
Are Blacks Getting a Hard Time in the Press?
The Randy Moss mock-mooning incident? Who cares? Same goes for the Terrell Owens MNF skit. Ron Artest going ballistic on a stupid basketball fan? That was going too far.

Free trade and open borders are great, but monetary union's only iffy at best, and political union will only lead to senseless bureaucracy.
