Have the folks from Improv Everyone finally gone over the line? Or is this a genuinely sweet thing to do for someone? Does this count as an Improv Everywhere prank if it was completely staged?

He can't exactly tell the reporter why he's there and doesn't seem to realize he's live on TV. It is April Fool's Day, but I think this is real because there's nothing inherently funny about it.
"The Internet’s driving this kind of stuff. … There was always this crew, this anarchist crew, these people can’t fit into society, they’re angry for whatever reason, they want to cause trouble. They’ve always been there. But now they’re coordinated by the internet, now they can talk to each other. It’s like child molesters, you know? I mean, child molesters have always been around but now they got a place to go and gather and do their evil deeds."
Inspired by Glenn Beck's 9/12 Project, Stephen launches his 10/31 Project.
"I'm sorry. I just love Glenn Beck's sanity. And I fear for it."

Here's a news report from Britain's Sky News of London protesters who broke into a local branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland. The Brits are taking their populist rage to the streets in a way we haven't yet seen in the U.S.
Unfortunately, the epic blog post that Miss Universe, Dayana Mendoza, wrote follwoing her trip to Guantánamo Bay with the U.S.O. has been taken down. But, lucky for us, The NYTimes' Lede blog grabbed it first. Read it in full below:
This week, Guantánamo!!! It was an incredible experience.
We arrived in Gitmo on Friday and stared going around the town, everybody knew Crystle and I were coming so the first thing we did was attend a big lunch and then we visited one of the bars they have in the base. We talked about Gitmo and what is was like living there. The next days we had a wonderful time, this truly was a memorable trip! We hung out with the guys from the East Coast and they showed us the boat inside and out, how they work and what they do, we took a ride around the land and it was a loooot of fun!
We also met the Military dogs, and they did a very nice demonstration of their skills. All the guys from the Army were amazing with us.
We visited the Detainees camps and we saw the jails, where they shower, how the recreate themselves with movies, classes of art, books. It was very interesting.
We took a ride with the Marines around the land to see the division of Gitmo and Cuba while they were informed us with a little bit of history.
The water in Guantánamo Bay is soooo beautiful! It was unbelievable, we were able to enjoy it for at least an hour. We went to the glass beach, and realized the name of it comes from the little pieces of broken glass from hundred of years ago. It is pretty to see all the colors shining with the sun. That day we met a beautiful lady named Rebeca who does wonders with the glasses from the beach. She creates jewelry with it and of course I bought a necklace from her that will remind me of Guantánamo Bay :)
I didn’t want to leave, it was such a relaxing place, so calm and beautiful.
