Mensagem:  Why does the average american have poor writing skills?

Lack of reading experience. Plain and simple, and no phd dissertation required to devine the reason. It takes massive amounts of reading (at a minimum) to be able to write well, and most people have spent too much time watching tv and playing video games, and frankly, wasting time on foolish and pedantic dumbed-down schoolwork that would have been time far better spent reading something challenging - or at least interesting.
