Rand McNally released its World Atlas Tuesday complete with graphs, sea charts and tables. It's just in time. A recent survey said 65 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 Carolina lawmakers from the Tea Party announced legislation that will allow North Carolina to establish its own religion. There's precedent. Last year Texas upheld the execution of a housewife who walked in front of the TV set during a football game.

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 50. It's an issue. Its survey said 16 percent of men get up at night to go to the bathroom while 14 percent get up and go to the fridge and 70 percent get up and go home.

NBC confirmed plans 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.

For 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.
