The bad news: Most U.S. middle- and high-school students are lacking in the coherent-writing department.

The good news: Thanks to today’s keyword-driven online writer’s and publishing market, which drives paying-job quality down to the lowest common denominator, no one’s expecting future generations to be particularly lucid with the written word.

No worries. I’m sure podcasting or some other fool comprehension-minimal medium will rush in to fill the void.

There’s much anxiety being generated over the finer points of New York’s plan to charge car drivers a traffic-reducing fee to drive into Manhattan during the daytime. Now that it looks like even the bridges and tunnels will be subject to some toll amount, this comment from a Daily News reader seems even funnier than face value:

Be careful! The terrorists have plenty of money, and soon may be the only ones rich enough to enter N.Y. city.

Time for Homeland Security to check on whether or not al Qaeda is setting up an E-ZPass slush fund.
