Reading isn't necessary....?!?!

 Today, a soon-to-graduate 19 yr old male told me...."I don't need to know how to read's not necessary.  You can just remember what things look like to get through life."  Then he told me that we need to have more Americans in other countries to teach them how to be more like us.  WHAT?!?!  I nearly fell off my rocker!  Is this what we will be leaving our country to?  Why has common sense been replaced by common ignorance?  UGH!

It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education than to have education without common sense.~ Robert G. Ingersoll

Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot his whole life, which created an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little which made him frail, and with his odd diet, he suffered from very bad breath. This made him.... what?
(This is so bad it's good...)
