The feature is by John Biederman, who has contributed "News Limericks" to the Chicago Tribune's youth-oriented RedEye tabloid.
A sample of Biederman's poetry:
"It's odd: Though most adults consent
that Santa and his elves
are myth, a bunch think government
can save us from ourselves.
From whence this came? It's all a haze.
Did Drug War so alarm? --
or court-spurred 'Warning' label craze
to save morons from harm?"
