America is fucked lying.

Here's the most depressing news story of the year:

One in Four Read No Books Last Year


I have no energy to introduce this quote:

''I just get sleepy when I read,'' said Richard Bustos of Dallas, a habit with which millions of Americans can doubtless identify. Bustos, a 34-year-old project manager for a telecommunications company, said he had not read any books in the last year and would rather spend time in his backyard pool.
Fosco is sad. He can't even make a good joke here.

I read that too, and truthfully I was shocked the number wasn't higher. I would have guessed 40%. Knowing how people lie on surveys, I think this might be closer to reality.

Anyway, who has time to read when American Idol is on?

I agree. Hence the new post title.
