Rueters reports that Rapper Kayne West is a proud non-reader, yet has written a, ahem, book (of sorts). Okay. So this article isn’t exactly new. But it has been resurrected recently on The Passive Voice, and with it a lot of chatter from authors who had not heard of this absurdity—myself included. When Stacey shared this with me, I was appalled. APPALLED. And yet, somehow not surprised. Well, wait, I was, actually, quite surprised. How can someone with such fame proudly proclaim he has no respect for books? Why would I care? I don’t really. But it sends the wrong message to young people. It sends the wrong message PERIOD. And I think it’s fair to say that people like him is what is wrong with America today. *shakes head*
Thanks, again, Stacey.
