    Skyler, you have to read the book first.

    They still do book reports? Figured it’d be email or Twitter by now.

    It must have been a real interesting book to stir up all those emptly thoughts.

    Today’s book recommendation; “The Solitude of Prime Numbers” by Paolo Giordano. A wonderful, heartbreaking story.

    But the cartoonist is fine.

    I guess those will have to suffice as words of encouragement (or discouragement, as the case may be).

    His computer is open, and ready to plagiarize on line- though teachers have software to catch that- now if American kids, AND adults, just knew how to read – with above 4% comprehension.

    They started doing “modern” literature when I started college in the ‘70s. I wrote scathing critiques, which got A’s. Even teachers with an agenda get tired of parroting. I also had to drop the class for Greek and Roman classics – it was too much for me, I was only 16. Porn isn’t new.

    Try Cliff’s Notes if it’s a classic. Otherwise, the comic book version will do. Always worked for me! (Tehee!)

    True. Porn is not new. The so-called classic “The Golden A—” just about made me throw up. I made the mistake of picking it up one day from a shelf and didn’t know what it was. A couple paragraphs were more than plenty. College-text indeed… Bleah! Pompeii (a party town) had one house that they think was a “bachelor’s pad” that was decorated entirely in tumescent phalli. Then there is this one, from 2600 B.C. “14 “But she carried her prostitution still further. She saw men portrayed on a wall, figures of Chaldeans portrayed in red, 15 with belts around their waists and flowing turbans on their heads; all of them looked like Babylonian chariot officers, natives of Chaldea. 16 As soon as she saw them, she lusted after them and sent messengers to them in Chaldea. 17 Then the Babylonians came to her, to the bed of love, and in their lust they defiled her. After she had been defiled by them, she turned away from them in disgust.” Ezekiel 23:14-17 (NIV) The first major use of nude photos was of wives sending such photos to their soldier husbands during the Civil War.
