With school starting and the traveling days of summer just about ended, we've entered that time when conversations about vacations are frequent: "Where did you go this year, and how was it?"

Just when you think Fox News and the right-wing scandal machine can sink no further, they wallow in a new level of filth that just boggles the mind.
