Modern America: Do folks even read these days?


Hey, you clicked on the link! You’re awesome!

This April Fools’ Day, we decided to run a little experiment. As journalists, sometimes it feels folks are just scanning the headline, glancing at the photo, and leaping right into making comments without having all the facts and context we provide in the article.

You are among our favorite people — the actual readers! Thank you!

Here’s what we ask: DO NOT COMMENT on this story. Don’t let anybody in on the joke. Please simply like this post on our Facebook page and know that we deeply appreciate those of you who truly want to be informed.
