Pretty girls don't have to be smart and they know that but there could be a contest for the smartest girls, if they could get enough people to watch it.
Well, you know, people pay big bucks to go to and watch football games, but chess tournaments and math contests, not so much.....America attaches little value to the life of the mind. It is what it is. As a country, we've gone through waves of anti-intellectualism. The current wave of anti-intellectualism we are going through.....well......it brought us Donald Trump. It's almost certainly the worst wave of anti-intellectualism we've ever gone through. If we ever go through one that's worse, we'll be at the point of burning down our libraries.

Darned America, they don't know what's good for them.

Reading more books would be good for them. Burning down their libraries would probably not be.
Reading books in libraries? That's where they keep things like Kipling, how antiquated. Besides they've busy with twitter, blogs and Facebook.
