To the dismally ill-informed reader who proclaimed that "Teenagers don't
read anything": as an 18-year-old university student, I was outraged by
your ignorant and ageist commentary. I do spend a good deal of my time
reading both for education and for enjoyment, and I am by no means an
anomaly. We are not, as you so tactfully put it, "increasingly stupid." It
might serve you well to be reminded that each generation has its own
ignoramuses, and before you go again announcing yourself as one, you might
consider easing away from sweeping, ill-founded generalizations.
