President George W Bush - the man who nearly died choking on a pretzel while watching American football yesterday afternoon, and leader of the free world - has advised parents to "demand [academic] excellence" from children. "Good study habits are reinforced by mothers and fathers who are willing to switch off the TV set and turn off video games to make sure the homework gets done." President Bush made his statement after signing an enormous education reform, which will see schools and other education facilities penalized in future for failing to meet standards. President Bush's own children were recently arrested after trying to buy alcohol.
