Will the Internet spawn a generation of uneducated louts?
John Halenar, who reads two newspapers a day, is concerned that it might.
“Although the Internet is valuable for searching out facts, very rarely do I stumble upon something of interest while browsing online,” writes John in a letter-to-the-editor in The Record (12/10/06, p. O-3).
“I look at two newspapers every day, and I’m always amazed at how many interesting stories I find–oftentimes on topics I never even suspected would be of interest to me.”
Do you agree with John that the Internet’s ability to instantly search and find the content you need is both a blessing and a curse?
Or does surfing the Net make you as well read as — well, reading the daily newspaper?
