From Academe Today

*  INTERNET ADDICTION is a valid, pathological condition that
   can lead to marital problems, social withdrawal, and -- in
   the case of students --  poor grades, according to a paper to
   be given today at the American Psychological Association's
   annual convention. The paper's author, Kimberly S. Young, has
   even given the disorder a name: pathological Internet use.
