Read This Now

The Literacy Debate story on the front page of yesterday’s NY Times is thought provoking. Does the internet take away the power of books or can books and the internet exist side by side?

This week’s Modern Love story is written by a young woman, now married with kids, who got tattoos after breakups and what these tattoos meant to her then and what they mean to her now.

More people in the NY/NJ area are using public transportation and carpools, this story illustrates the lengths that people will go to in order to save a buck or two. I consider myself very lucky, I walk to work everyday except in cases of inclement weather, then I go on the bus. After reading this story, you better believe I will not be giving up my job anytime soon without a fight. There’s also a story on the increase of people who ride their bikes to work.
