Relating to History

I so enjoyed today's discussion about Welty's book and also the side tracks that were most revealing. In relation to the latter, just happened on this story http://www.cnn.com/20...­
and was struck by this paragraph: "The median age in the United States hovers right around 37 years old; this means that half of all Americans were born in 1975 or later. The presence of television, to them, is as unremarkable as the sight of the sun in the summer sky."

Nonetheless, never give up introducing people to reading the classics!!!

I get to talk to over 300 students each year about how great literature is for working out who they are... At least a couple of them see the light :)
