-FUPPETS- For Readers XI

There are many interesting topics in today's -FUPPETS- For Readers (eleventh edition). From the cheap chicanery of fake musical performances to the seeming inability for people to grasp Darwin's Theory of Evolution Throuh Natural Selection, to the U.S. Congress and it's stupidity in attacking funding for the arts, this one has everything. Read, absorb, think about it, and make up your own minds.
