WASHINGTON POST - Jeremy Spreitzer probably wouldn't read this story if it weren't about him. He is an aliterate -- someone who can read, but chooses not to. A graduate student in public affairs at Park University in Kansas City, Mo., Spreitzer, 25, gleans most of his news from TV.

"I am fairly lazy when it comes to certain tasks," says Spreitzer. "Reading is one of them."
