Let me also know if you are willing to co-post the thread if I am unable to post on a certain day.

    Single-issue people. They're out there... on every thread. No matter what the topic, they try to link it to their pet issue in some way, shape, or form. They are... The Thread Hijackers™. While little can be done to stop them, and it is probably best to ignore them, I find it much, much more fun to mock them. Sure, being passionate about an issue you care about is a good thing, but thread hijacking is annoying and, to be honest, turns off people who might otherwise agree with you. So, on to the mocking. I'd like to coin the...

    Are America's youth graduating from college with a language proficiency that goes beyond "duh"? That's a question that has puzzled educators and literary experts as they perused recent adult literary assessment results that show reading proficiency among college graduates has tumbled in the past decade. An astounded Michael Gorman, president of the American Library Association, said only 31 percent of college graduates can read a complex book and extrapolate from it. "That's not saying much for the remainder." Experts admit to not knowing how to explain the decline in reading comprehension. What's disturbing, said Mark S. Schneider, commissioner of the...

    Annoyed Reader
    The purpose of FreeRepublic.com's multiple message boards is to limit the topics for each board to particular topics.

DO THE READERS A FAVOR. STOP CROSS-POSTING YOUR MESSAGES!
