Literacy Under Siege

Views

Along with the general issue of fair weather regard for constitutional liberties, I’m perhaps even more troubled by the generally dismal state of literacy and diction. Rasmussen polled Americans to see if they believed that Julian Assange and Wikileaks are guilty of “treason” and 51% of respondents said yes.

Of course, Assange is Australian. So he can’t commit treason since he’s not an American citizen. Not even if he’s super-double evil.

Even if he’s triple-double evil.
