The results are in from a 20-year study: Teenagers who watch several hours of television a day do worse at school and are less likely to graduate than their peers.

The good news is, this isn't a bad thing. Maybe I can get my fries a little faster with more of you guys working at McDonald's?

This group is in the news this week for working with Georgia Republicans to draft a memo that was distributed to lawmakers demanding that a law requiring only "facts" be taught in school and not this idiotic "theory" of evolution. Oh and also, evolution is apparently the invention of some archaic, Jewish sect according to these people.
