NPR, who almost lost its Government endowment earlier this year, is now announcing they are considering making cuts in staff and programming due to lack of funds.

Researchers announce today that 89 decibels is the key in deciding if you have a good kid or a bad one. They are claiming that kids who listen to loud music (over 89 decibels) for at least one hour a day are TWICE as likely to smoke pot.
