Introducing the Junk Food ID Card

By |March 21st, 2007|

Since the dawn of time, schools have been havens for junk food.

Bush's initiative to send over 20,000 new troops to Iraq in a "surge" that defense experts say could help amend current problems. Predictably, the issue is split down party lines, with most Republicans supporting the surge and most Democrats opposing it.
