Writer's Block

The bad news:
More than half of students at four-year colleges -- and at least 75 percent at two-year colleges -- lack the literacy to handle complex, real-life tasks such as understanding credit card offers, a study found.
The worse news:
Overall, the average literacy of college students is significantly higher than that of adults across the nation. Study leaders said that was encouraging but not surprising, given that the spectrum of adults includes those with much less education.
The better news (for me):

Since writing is a big part of my job, I'd probably be working a drive-thru if literacy was any better in this country.
