Quote of the Day

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” 
               ~~Isaac Asimov (1980)

Loved Isaac.  He was a force for rational thought and behavior. I discovered him after inheriting scores of his paperbacks that had been stored in a basement.  I'll always think of Isaac with the scent of mildew wafting through my brain.
