The Onion has breaking news:

WASHINGTON—According to a new report released Monday by a panel of top economists and social scientists, the People's Republic of China will overtake the United States as the world's dominant asshole by the year 2020.

Monday is a public holiday here, so normal blogging will resume on Tuesday.
