The Problem of Illiteracy in Our Nation’s Capital
By Bob Ellis on May 22nd, 2010
You have to hand it to that Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. She is so dedicated to fighting illiteracy, she’s funded this video to help promote reading not only in her own state of Arizona, but also to combat the terrible problem of illiteracy in Washington D.C.
It seems many people, powerful people that you would normally expect to be able to read, just aren’t able to read simple laws. Many of these same people produce and vote on laws that are 2,000 and nearly 3,000 pages long…yet find themselves incapable of reading the very laws they pass…or an Arizona law that is only 10 pages long.
I remember there used to be a commercial on TV, one we could all agree with: a mind is a terrible thing to waste.
But thank God for Governor Brewer’s dedication to this important issue.
