Are their attention spans really THAT short?

Over at Get Schooled, Friday, it was posted that a textbook rep was marketing their "short version" stories because of the students "short attention" spans.

I hate to think that we have to use abridged versions of the classics because we think students can't pay attention long enough to read them.

If we use abridged versions of everything don't we just expand their short attention spans?
