I love the Straight Dope and I'm glad to find another regular reader of it. I should apply to their newsletter, though I do try to check their site everyday. I was wondering about Closed Captioning too. Straight Dope is criminally underrated considering how useful and intelligent it is (I prefer it to Snopes myself, though Snopes is more about myth busting). Thanks to Straight Dope, I have been able to rid myself of many a misconception and even got into an argument with a history teacher over Catherine the Great's death (I was right, thanks to Straight Dope).
