Kin U Reed?

Oh, good.

The average American college graduate's literacy in English declined significantly over the past decade, according to results of a nationwide test released yesterday.

When the test was last administered, in 1992, 40 percent of the nation's college graduates scored at the proficient level, meaning that they were able to read lengthy, complex English texts and draw complicated inferences. But on the 2003 test, only 31 percent of the graduates demonstrated those high-level skills. There were 26.4 million college graduates.

I'm just glad this article doesn't compare Murricans to furriners. We might not be so good at reading and writing, but by god we are good at invading and incarcerating!
