America’s non-readers.

This article contains some very interesting facts regarding the demographics of non-readers in America.

Most surprising is that 28% of those over age 50 haven’t read a book in the past year, compared to only 20% spanning the ages 18 to 49. But then again, if you’ve ever been to a nursing home then you know that the TVs are all on and the bookshelves are usually covered in a layer of undisturbed dust. Beside eyesight being an issue in the elderly, I don’t have an answer for why over a quarter of older Americans don’t read.

Overall, this article is worth the short read . . . unless, of course, you’re a non-reader.

Pattison's Perspectives

Remembering a true American hero.

Regardless of your politics, Mark Lane was a good, noble man. A man who sought truth and justice above all else.

Reflecting on his long life (this past week marked 2 years since his passing), I wish to honor his many accomplishments by sharing this fascinating and well done biography of the man who should be a household name, but sadly (thanks to government education) few people of recent generations have ever heard of him.
