In the beginning ….

The difference between “stupidity” and “ignorance” is usually ignored or glossed over in daily communication. A pity because it says so much about us.
Stupidity is a lack of intelligence. Ignorance is a lack of knowledge. The problem today is that more and more stupid people have become less ignorant and have assumed the roles of politicians and members of the media. That still leaves plenty of stupid people to vote for them and follow their exploits on radio, television, in print, and on the silver screen.
A stupid person with knowledge is like a pyromaniac with dynamite, sooner or later lots of people are going to get burned!
