It's mind-boggling to think that The Toledo, Ohio, Block Bugler could manage to editorialize on the death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez without once mentioning that he was a member in good standing of the Royal Order of Egomaniacal Socialist Nuts Lodge No. 1. But it did. And it not only tacitly sided with this ding-dong for nationalizing (and ruining) the South American nation's oil industry, it rationalized Mr. Chavez's embrace of world dictators, in part, as “Latin American pride.” We can't wait to see The Bugler's editorial when Fidel Castro dies or when Bashar Assad takes a bullet to the head. ... The New York Post reports that 79.3 percent of New York City public high school graduates who enrolled last year in City University of New York's six community colleges had not mastered the basics of reading, writing and math and required remedial courses. These results, by the way, are brought to you by The Union Label. Everybody sing! ... Sayeth pundit Ben Stein: “Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured but not everyone must prove they are a citizen. And now, any of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.” Only in America in the 21st century. Sigh.
