    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    I blame this on the number of Americans that use the New York Post as a legitimate news source.

    Or maybe you should blame on those who fault the messenger, rather than the source of the information. The source was actually a report with which the U.S. Education Department participated. Also, the Education Department uses the results of this survey extensively. Don't believe me .....do a Google search on the study.

    You still don't get it. You attacked the publisher of an article and a person who linked it, rather than the article itself. What is your point? There is nothing wrong or not factual in the article, and if there was, why not attack it? If the article is indeed factual, what does it matter what news organization publishes it? Now, if the article were not factual, that would be another matter, but that is not the case here.

    So instead of calling my co-worker a dumb *** I called him an U.S. Adult. Needless to say I was sternly reprimanded.

    Except the fact that you don't get that the New York Post is one step above supermarket tabloid - and that's being generous.
