In past collections, Dave Barry has satirized American government; this time he focuses his comic genius completely on its stupidities and embarrassments. Barry skewers the media, the American educational system, lawyers, giant zucchini (seriously), teenagers and their music, and a dozen other topics in a string of digressions.
