This just in: Apparently, I'm not the only one noticing this trend. This column expands on a recent survey that shows only 30% of adults can read complex texts accurately. I take that as an indication that the post-literate environment is developing faster than I thought
. The author of this article, however, reports this fact in the context of what seems to be almost glee over the idea that Johnny can't read (you can almost hear him as a five-year old throwing a tantrum and saying, "I don't wanna read!"), that I retract my previous observation about post-literate society being barbarous.
