Kids and Gadgets, Defending the Cupcake, and Pledging In Spanish (School Life)

Adults Freak Out Over Kids Using Gadgets:

Longtime readers of this section know that I love a good technology story (or even a bad technology story), but who knew that it would be such big news this week that...kids use lots of gadgets?

That certainly was the case, with most of the major papers vying for best headline on the same story: American kids gorging on a diet of media, report finds (Chicago Tribune), Study Shows Ever More Kids Embrace a Plugged-In Lifestyle (Washington Post), Kids' lives 'saturated' by media, study says (Arizona Republic), U.S. students master art of multitasking (Washington Times).
