The other day I read the following quote from Kanye West: I am a proud non-reader of books. I like to get information from doing stuff like actually talking to people and living real life.

And even though I think that's one of the lamest statements ever (I don't care if he doesn't read, but I'm pretty sure there are plenty of readers who are living real lives and who actually talk to people), what really set my teeth on edge was the predictable response: WHAT MESSAGE IS HE SENDING TO THE CHILDREN?

Parents, if your children are getting their life lessons from Kanye West, you have beyond failed them anyway. Just go ahead and drive with them on your lap and dangle them off a balcony, too.

If you own any of the books in the opposite side bar and would like them signed, mail them to:
P.O. Box 924104

Please include three dollars for return postage. Thank you.
