Zits, The Parents Bible

I love the cartoon strip Zits, and am convinced that the creator has a direct line of inspiration from God, or at least is a very good observer of teenage behaviour.  I really love the strip from this Sunday.  Makes me wonder whether the issue with declines in reading comprehension in teenagers and young adults has less to do with internet media per se (there has been some studies done that show that people read a screen differently than they read a page of paper) than with the simple fact of multi-tasking.  People never learn to slow down and read deeply, but do a multitude of things at the same time.

I’m trying to get permission to post the cartoon to my blog, so we’ll see.
