Biden Time
It's Memorial Day weekend! The perfect time for Joe Biden to sort of miss the point.

Fictions
Sinisterly named educational testing firm Scantron agreed this week to remove a pro-charter school reading passage from standardized tests administered in Chicago. After all, who needs fictional brainwashing when you have a real-world example right in your back yard?

Frictions
Come on. The rest of the Class of '62 is just jealous because no one read their manifestos.

Corrections
Well, at least the London Whale is feeling better. But isn't this the type of thing you just paper over with pretend money anyway?

Elections
Mitt Romney bucked conventional wisdom this week when he defended expanding class sizes. Unless, of course, it's the upper class.

Prescriptions
So which in the long run is worse? Being milkshaked or Bud Lighted?

Depictions
Finally, we know it's just a movie, but we totally would've aimed for Bieber.
