Mensagem:  You can't be serious, Tom. I've always thought your Portuguese was superb. As for college students not being able to write effectively, that, I'm quite aware of. You see, I went to a typical state college where most of the students hailed from "Middle-America" (read: middle class). And your assertion without question applies to their writting skills. But then again, this may be a global problem. That is, the same trend seems to be the case in Europe, Africa, Brazil, South Africa, among other countries. Now, as to why that is so, a Phd. dissertation probably wouldn't be enough to explain....... Cheers, -Miguel Vieira P.S. Thanks for the compliment.
