The Dumbest Generation

If I say "Cn u blv we have 2 rd this stupid bk 4 class?" Did you get "Can you believe we have to read this stupid book for class?" Were you appalled at the lack of spelling and mystified as to grammar? Emory professor and author Mark Baulerein thinks all this texting, twittering, Facebooking and such is rewiring students' brains and quite frankly, could be making them dumb. Join us for a discussion about his latest book The Dumbest Generation on Monday. And call us with your questions.
