Life increasingly resembles The Onion

You know life is getting increasingly surreal when you start reading stories in the Times that make you remember stories you read 7 or 8 years ago -- in The Onion.

Specifically, I'm thinking of this story in the Times about the strain sinking housing prices are having over divorces.

I couldn't help but think of the classic Onion headline, "Lack of Second Car Preserves Marriage."

And as long as we're talking of the surreal, anybody notice this story from Friday's Washington Post? It has got to be the funniest article ever written to come from the war on terror.
