Hi, Joe

Veddy good. I get what you're saying now. And I must agree. See? My paradigm
is rather shifting nowadays. NOT trust the numbers? NOT compare my
daughter's reading with all 15 year old's in America? Really?

I do know one thing: If they ask me what my median income is, I'm lying
about it. L on a survey. Maybe not on a tax form.

as for your final example:
>Has the proliferation of email caused people to communicate more via the
>written medium, or are long-winded people attracted to the internet?

I say neither. I say, introverted, shy folk, who are just as intelligent and
capable of communicating, as their more outgoing, direct friends and
neighbors, have never had an opportunity to GET A WORD IN EDGEWISE!!! LOL
But, give me a medium where I can express myself without anyone
interrupting, and watch me GO.

that's what I say.
