My daughter, a college senior, is home on vacation, which means I get a crash course in pop culture. I usually wind up with some new iPod songs, YouTube videos and TV shows. (She also gave me her copy of "Pride and Prejudice.") This year, the quirky must-see is the MTV reality show "Jersey Shore." Throw a group of young adults into a cottage, add booze, tank tops and hair gel, and you get a series that's like a five-car Beltway accident you can't resist staring at. The New York Times weighed in this week with an article on Snooki, J-WOWW, The Situation and other cast members, including five reasons to like the show.
