    Actually while on a bus, I was chatting with an older guy. I forget how it came up, but he said he couldn't read. He said it so matter of factly, I think he was serious.

    I wanted to give him the little engine that could and a hug or something.

    I can't believe anyone is totally illiterate. I mean they all can read a stop sign, can't they? Or do they just recognize the shape and color?

    I actually don't remember the last time I read a stop sign. But yes I'm sure people probably need some sort of functional literacy. Although I doubt they could get through a pamphlet or something.
