What is the World Coming To?

As I traverse the very flat plains of Indiana yesterday, I pass a lovely high school. Outside this school is a sign board, one of those with the movable letters. And on this sign it reads:

XX HIGH SCHOOL
Annual Book Drive
XX City Barnes & Nobel

Seriously? Yes, go back and re-read the last line. It's supposed to be a bookstore, NOT an honorable award location. This sign is outside a location that is meant to education our children about a BOOK DRIVE no less. Something that requires literacy decides to send folks to the local book store focusing on world piece or what?

Be afraid folks, be very afraid. And please buy your children a dictionary and an AP Manual when they get to college. Cuz itz imprtant thad thez learnd to reed gooder!
