Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

"Thompson notes that several studies point to the issue that high school and college digital natives are really wretched at searching. They are not in the habit of thinking critically about information. The do not assess the credibility of their sources." Yes, that. I can't tell you how many discussions I've had surrounding this.

Dear conservative activist groups, including the Family Research Council, you look like idiots when you not only support, but honor deadbeat dads by giving them your "100%" certification. I think you don't understand your actual values. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
