Speed Reader

This is an interesting site that allows you to speed read any text you insert into the box, but I doubt that it really helps people. I am a firm believer that a sentence’s structure must be completely laid out in front of the reader for total comprehension. Of course speed reading has it purpose for mindless reading of legal texts or something like that, but when someone is writing some of importance that must be tasted like a fine wine and left on the tongue to unlock its full flavor it is truly a mistake to chug it like a Miller product at a keg party. Speed reading is a the pedestrian form of pretending to comprehend that which they don’t take the time to understand.
