ATLANTA (CBS Atlanta) — Better not put the top down if you’re driving a red car.
According to a study conducted by Halfords, a British automotive company, birds most often target red cars when doing their business.
The company analyzed 1,140 cars across five cities – Brighton, Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds and Manchester – over the course of two days.
Researchers found crimson cars topped the number of bird droppings at 18 percent. Birds targeted blue cars 14 percent of the time. Black cars at 11 percent, white at 7 percent, silver at 3 percent and green at 1 percent rounded out the list.
So why are we giving money to these assholes?
The public view of government leaders here remains exceedingly negative; Zardari was rated unfavorably by 85 percent of Pakistanis polled in a Pew Global Attitudes survey whose results were released Wednesday, and only 34 percent approved of Gilani.
And not surprisingly, after a year of contentious dealings with the United States, about 74 percent of the respondents said they “consider the U.S. an enemy,” Pew said, up five points from last year’s survey. The public, which overwhelmingly opposes CIA drone strikes inside Pakistan, also offers dwindling support for joint efforts with the United States against Islamist extremists.
The military continues to rank as the nation’s highest-regarded national institution, with 77 percent
saying it has “a good influence on the country,” the report said.

“[Pat] Tillman has become such a complicated symbol of sort of Rorschached that you can almost take anything you want in this great American who turns down of millions of dollars to go fight for his country and then he’s like, ‘Wait a minute. I don’t like Afghanistan. I don’t believe in the mission we’re fighting for. But wait a minute, I’m going to continue to fight just the same as if I did believe in the mission,’” MSNBC’s cultural critic Toure said on the network today.
“You know, I mean, for the Army to have the most high-profiled soldier come out of the Army and perhaps criticize the mission would have been devastating for the military. So it’s not quite clear what happened, actually, in Afghanistan. I mean, just a very complicated situation. I can see how many people could try to take it in the wrong direction,” Toure surmised on the new MSNBC program “The Cycle.”
From Walter E. Williams at the Patriot Post:
In President Barack Obama’s 2012 State of the Union address, he said that “higher education can’t be a luxury. It is an economic imperative that every family in America should be able to afford.” Such talk makes for political points, but there’s no evidence that a college education is an economic imperative. A good part of our higher education problem, explaining its spiraling cost, is that a large percentage of students currently attending college are ill-equipped and incapable of doing real college work. They shouldn’t be there wasting their own resources and those of their families and taxpayers. Let’s look at it.
Robert Samuelson, in his Washington Post article “It’s time to drop the college-for-all crusade” (5/27/2012), said that “the college-for-all crusade has outlived its usefulness. Time to ditch it. Like the crusade to make all Americans homeowners, it’s now doing more harm than good.” Richard Vedder — professor of economics at Ohio University, adjunct scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and director of The Center for College Affordability & Productivity, or CCAP — in his article “Ditch … the College-for-All Crusade,” published on The Chronicle of Higher Education’s blog, “Innovations” (6/7/2012), points out that the “U.S. Labor Department says the majority of new American jobs over the next decade do not need a college degree. We have a six-digit number of college-educated janitors in the U.S.” Another CCAP essay by Vedder and his colleagues, titled “From Wall Street to Wal-Mart,” reports that there are “one-third of a million waiters and waitresses with college degrees.” More than one-third of currently working college graduates are in jobs that do not require a degree, such as flight attendants, taxi drivers and salesmen. Was college attendance a wise use of these students’ time and the resources of their parents and taxpayers?

LONDON — Prominent Hollywood figures are among those who signed a letter in support of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s request for political asylum in Ecuador.
The petition, which a group called Just Foreign Policy delivered to the country’s embassy here where Assange sought refuge last week, was signed by Michael Moore, Oliver Stone, Danny Glover, Bill Maher and author Naomi Wolf, among others, it said.
Just Foreign Policy said it delivered the letter with more than four thousand signatures from Americans urging Ecuardo’s president Rafael Correa to approve Assange’s asylum request.
Assange, who is Australian, walked into the Ecuadorian embassy last week in his latest attempt to avoid extradition to Sweden where he would face sex assault charges.
