Can you read?

Rochelle Riley of the Free Press reports today on a Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Growth study that estimates that


of Michigan adults read at less than a 6th grade level. Yes, 44%. WOW.
I find that number staggering.

In Washtenaw County, there is help: Washtenaw Literacy.
If you suspect someone doesn't read very well, you can help them immeasurably, by getting them help. Yes, it can be embarrassing, but--that doesn't mean you shouldn't ask, and offer help.
