Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Quote of the Day

"Ignorance breeds monsters to fill up the vacancies of the soul that are unoccupied by the verities of knowledge."
--- Horace Mann

I'm too tired at the moment to put Mann's idea in the particular context that I have in mind.  Will probably be too busy tomorrow.

But soon, I will have something to say about this 19th Century quote that brings it right up to date.
