Stupid is hot...the new fad

Looks like there are even formal courses in it...
There’s this thing called the National
Assessment of Adult Literacy, which just came out
and said that Americans not only can’t read but
are vigorously getting worse. Here it is, from
the Washington ever-loving Post, December 25 in
the Year of Our Decline 2005:

“Only 41 percent of graduate students tested in
2003 could be classified as ‘proficient’ in
prose—reading and understanding information in
short texts—down 10 percentage points since 1992.
Of college graduates, only 31 percent were
classified as proficient—compared with 40 percent
in 1992.”

That’s college graduates, brethren and sistern!
They can’t read simple stuff. “See Spot run. Run,
Spot….” What you think them other scoundrels
can’t do that ain’t graduates? Halleluja, dearly
beloved, idiots are us. Am us, I mean.

What do you suppose will be the results of that?

You're looking at the beginning...moving fast.
