As a serious blogger, I've gotta vent about some of my journalistic peers. It seems that blogs and other media outlets are becoming lazy. It's bad enough that people don't read actual newspapers or books anymore. But now people won't even read articles online...they settle for lists.

You know these lists *cough* Buzzfeed *cough* ... Top 2 ways to tell that you're a girl or 10 things you find in your belly button.  Is our collective attention span so short now that we can only digest information in 5 word chunks? Matter fact, did you stop reading this post after the first paragraph?! See. Lazy.

For a New Years resolution, why don't we resolve to be a more educated populace?  Or, let me put it in terms you'll understand:

Top One Thing that is Making Americans Dumber:
1. Mental Incapacity

Book Review: Coldest Winter Ever

When I told my friend, a former high school English teacher, that I was reading this book, she replied, "Are you a 13 year old girl?" Apparently, I was supposed to have read this book in my formative years, however I went to a Christian school where we read redacted versions of classic novels. But I digress...

The Coldest Winter Ever was written by Sister Souljah. Just like Random Family, the book peers into the ups and downs of a girl growing up in these rough New York City streets. 

The book was an interesting read except for the middle portion in which SS inserts herself into the book as a character. Are you following? Yeah, it was weird. Not to mention, her presence in the book was uninteresting and unnecessary. But, all in all, it was a good read. I might even check out the sequel.
