http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Rand McNally released its World Atlas Tuesday complete with graphs, sea charts and tables. It's just in time. A recent survey said sixty-five percent of U.S. high school students can't find North Korea on a map and pretty soon they might not be able to find it anywhere.

North Korea mobilized its rocket engineers Thursday and announced their intention to attack and destroy the U.S. There must be some way to calm them down. Forget food supplies, if we want to save North Korea we need to send them a really smooth jazz station.

Men's Health launched a prostate health awareness campaign for men over fifty. It's an issue. Its survey said sixteen percent of men get up at night to go to the bathroom while fourteen percent get up and go to the fridge and seventy percent get up and go home.

NBC confirmed plans Tuesday to move the Tonight Show from Burbank to New York City. It's a far more exciting locale for the show. No one wants to say there's nothing to do in Burbank but every year the city leads the nation in the number of squirrel suicides.

Mad Men returns to AMC tonight about Madison Avenue advertising executives back in the Sixties. Everyone drinks, smokes, sleeps around, then they pass out. The TV show illustrates how quaint and calm America used to be before cocaine arrived in the Seventies.

John Kerry declared he will donate five percent of his salary to charity as a sacrifice for the sequester budget cuts. He's worth two hundred million dollars. For five percent of his Secretary of State's salary to hurt him he would have had to marry Dionne Warwick.

The White House on Monday proclaimed April to be Personal Finance Responsibility Month. The Obama administration put together a website intended to teach children how to manage budgets responsibly. It looks like another case of those who cannot do, teach.

President Obama addressed California donors who are getting impatient Wednesday. Wall Street's at an all-time high, oil is high, gun control and amnesty are going nowhere. It's starting to look like they're going to find his birth certificate in Kennebunkport.

The White House backed banks who give home loans to people with bad credit. They threatened banks who refuse. The American Dream is now a thirty-year mortgage and a two-month payment plan, backed by the full faith and paratroopers of the U.S. government.

Pepsi enlisted Beyonce for an ad campaign Thursday, allowing the pop singer to sing her own songs. Her agent is very aware that a Pepsi commercial sparked Michael Jackson's downfall. She has it in her contract that she is not allowed to light her hair on fire.

Senator Jay Rockefeller asked Carnival Cruise to reimburse the U.S. Treasury the four million dollars it cost the U.S. government for the Coast Guard to tow last month's sewage-fouled liner back safely to port. The cruise company is complaining, but they won't get anywhere. Even the Auto Club only tows you so many times before they start charging you.
