FO News Roundup: February 25, 2009

  • And the Oscar for most gratuitous and tasteless exhibition passed off as news goes to . . . Boston.com, for their School Sex Scandal Photo Gallery!
  • Websites technically do have numbers. The Internet is actually a "series of tubes". Give me your number, I'll send you an internet. Trust in government.
  • Some schools with low test scores have resorted to reducing recess to spend more time cramming math facts down their students' throats. Turns out this remarkably stupid idea is indeed remarkably stupid.
  • US deals crushing blow to drug cartel! Maybe this time no other group from an impoverished country will take their place in the extremely lucrative market of narcotics smuggling.
