Before Facebook, Twitter, and texting, before Spotify, Pinterest and Snapchat, before sexting, before cable news channels, there was "The Ear." It was...
So, you've been asked to give a commencement address. Congratulations! That's quite an honor. But whatever you do, don't let it go to your head.

Corruption is a byproduct of a person in power, either through money, by way of election, or by force, who is arrogant instead of grateful. In the words of Elliot Spitzer, "hubris is terminal."
The usual gang of idiots over at MAD Magazine have once again set their sights on the dumbest things of the year. 2013 had quite a few dumb things take place in it and, as ever, MAD took aim at political absurdities.
