Leonard Pitts, Jr. is a columnist for the Miami Herald. His column today discusses the "stupidification" of American society. While he doesn't specifically mention writing, I think it applies. Writers are more or less at the mercy of the market, which reflects popular culture.
Do you agree with his conclusions? And how (if at all) do you "adjust" your writing to deal with the "dumbing down" he describes?
