Is the digital age stupefying our kids?

That's what author Mark Bauerlein thinks. Did you know that the average teenager does 1742 text messages PER MONTH! Does this alarm you? Do you think it says something about the next generation? Mark Bauerlein is the author of "The Dumbest Generation: How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes our Future", he's one of my guests on this week's Realgoodwords. See what the New York Times had to say here.

Is this just the same old tirade of old people? Didn't they say the same thing about Elvis Presley? Or pong? Let us know what you think!

Watch the author talk about his book here. And tune in this week on Wednesday from 6-7pm and Sunday 9-10am. Or see the Realgoodwords archive later in the week....

Simply how much can an agency legally require to allow a plan holder out of his vehicle insurance?
Exactly how much does your company charge when someone wants to cancel and how much pressure would you use to keep them?
What are some ideas or something like that we can say if our any individual has several months left on his present car policy? Definitely, all of us are not going to wait until his renewal comes due each and every time.

When I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when
new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever
a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?
Thanks!
