I thought this line in a MSN article truthful--I have faith in elementary and high school teachers though, despite:

"Kids in Asia spend the summer studying math and science while American mall rats are texting each other about Britney and Miley."

The problem is: Miley was so born to do what she does. I do wonder, however, is she home schooled or just not in school...or does it not matter?

Well, admiring other people (texting each other about) has it limits..."If you meet the Buddha on the Road, kill him" and all that.

the kids in asia are most likely also texting...

alas, the anti-intellectualism that exists in american society that richard hofstadter wrote about in the 1960s is still alive and well in the america of the beginning of the 21st century!
