Rupert Murdoch, the media mogul, almost had the biggest turkey dinner in U.S. history.
Gracia Morin's insight:

Rupert Murdoch wrote about O.J. Simpson in a book that would become very successful, but when it was time to send it to book stores the fantasy crashed. O.J. Simpson started talking about how it would have been if he had actually killed his wife and then book stores started saying that they wouldn't sell the book. Murdoch was about to become a successful person because of his book, but the dream crashed before it even started.

When scientists at MIT developed e-mail in 1961, they said it was a giant step for mankind. They didn't realize it was a weapon that could destroy the lives of many people.
Gracia Morin's insight:

What Buchwald says is very true and scary. We use e-mail for everything these days and what we send could either strengthen us or destroy us. We need to be careful of what we do on the internet and what we send because we do not know who is reading it.

To make sure our elections are fair, observers from democratic countries are monitoring the process.
Gracia Morin's insight:

This is a little different way of writing an article, but it's really common for Art Buchwald. Instead of being an article based on facts here he uses a small story to explain his point of view on the issues our elections have. Most of the article is explaining the injustice the electoral system has.

Gracia Morin's insight:

Buchwald explains the future problems that will rise because of overpopulation. Here he uses a lot of facts and speculations based on his observations on how humans treat the planet.
