America Serves |

America Serves |

"The Obama Administration will call on Americans to serve in order to meet the nation’s challenges. President-Elect Obama will expand national service programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps and will create a new Classroom Corps to help teachers in underserved schools, as well as a new Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, and Veterans Corps. Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. Obama will encourage retiring Americans to serve by improving programs available for individuals over age 55, while at the same time promoting youth programs such as Youth Build and Head Start."

Lots of policy details at

still impressed.



"ACTOR/playwright Wallace Shawn blames President Bush for wrecking his love life and causing writer's block."

Hmm... Let me try this -
I've been a crazy bastard the last two years because Bush was president. Obviously that made me all crazy-like and when yr all crazy-like, of course, sometimes you are a bastard.

did that work?
