The closing of the American book

Read a forceful piece, apparently the #1 most emailed article for the New York Times right now, speaking to the consequnces of Americans choosing not to read. Cable networks are no doubt happy about this trend as long as more eyeballs stay glued to the tube. I wouldn't be surprised if this impacts our productivity, innovativeness, and work ethic over the long-run, in turn engendering not so attractive demographics that is less educated and well-off. What goes will come around.
