After picking up the latest Harry Potter book, I stopped into in CVS across the street to pick up a few things. The girls behind the counter were peeking out the window and making rather disparaging remarks about the traffic in the bookstore. Finally, the tall cute one who thinks she'll be eighteen and cute forever said, "I don't know why they bother to read, anyway. I never read. I hate reading. What a bunch of losers."

I was discouraged, because I've heard that sentiment expressed over and over. I mean, how many future convenience store and gas station clerks do we need?
