Scary statistic!

I was talking to Ed, who works at the Booksmith at Cumberland Mall, today and he told me a really scary statistic.

Apparently, the illiteracy rate in Cumberland County is 67%. That's roughly 30% higher than the national average.

Think about that! Over two thirds of the people in our county are functionally illiterate! That's just insane. No wonder I have to show the people who come into the store where to find everything...they can't read!
