vanishedone commented on the word coordinated interpersonal labial spasm
Frank Cottrell Boyce: 'Schools are not only not buying books, they’re chucking them out to make room for computers to convert libraries into learning resource centres (LRCs).'The LRC is an educational disaster. Here, where books are merely “learning resources�?, reading is about functional literacy instead of pleasure. A paperclip is a learning resource. Google Earth is a learning resource. But a book is “the distilled essence of a human soul�?. A book is something you take to bed with you. It is not a learning resource any more than a kiss is a coordinated interpersonal labial spasm.'
