From War-Torn to Wonderland
Honduras and other Central American countries once embroiled in war have become hot markets for affordable beachfront property.

Negative campaigning:
On NPR this morning, Jim Nayder, host of the Annoying Music Show, quoted this gem from William H. Harrison's campaign against Martin Van Buren:

Who rules us with an iron rod?
Who moves at Satan's beck and nod?
Who heeds not man,
Who heeds not God?
Van Buren, Van Buren!

Thanks to those readers who pointed me to the NPR archive and to Jim Nayder's identity (the original version of this post did not identify him), and to Michelle Dulak and N.Z. Bear who transcribed for me the text of the second stanza, which reads:

Who would his friends, his country sell
Do other deeds too base to tell
Deserves the lowest place in hell
