X-nay on the ook-bay

First of all the Windsor Catholic School board plans to do away with its libraries. Then I had an argument with my son that no, Wikipedia is not a credible source to cite in a research paper. And this morning, as a taunt, we were looking through newspapers from 1921 and I grew wistful for the wordy advertisements, paragraphs of information that people actually read. As kids we played with language, speaking in pig Latin, or reciting long poems in Donald Duck’s voice. Soon we will be clicking, grunting troglodytes lining our litter boxes with pages from Good Night Moon.
