Post-Literacy

“[Michael Bloomberg] … continued the tirade against his home country, accusing America of favoring uneducated and unworldly politicians. ‘If you look at the U.S., you look at who we’re electing to Congress, to the Senate—they can’t read,” he said. “I’ll bet you a bunch of these people don’t have passports. We’re about to start a trade war with China if we’re not careful here, only because nobody knows where China is. Nobody knows what China is.’ ”  http://gothamist.com/2010/11/06/bloomberg_talks_electric_taxis_in_h.php

Yes, Mayor Bloomberg, we continue to plunge past plummet [Housman] into post-literacy.
