Quote of the Day from Bertrand Russell

Dear Loyal Readers,

Thanks for your interest in my last Bacon Blog on Michigan’s Scott Matzka, which has since run on a handful of national websites.

No Bacon Blog today, but I can offer a quote of the day.

The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.  –  Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), British philosopher, mathematician, historian and social critic. Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, 1950.

    I suppose if I was pretty sure I knew what you were talking about, that would make me a fool and/or fanatic?

    I hope BOTH political parties and ALL of their Advisors, plus ALL so called Independents, have read this enduring quotation! Hard to find much “greyness” amongst political views these days! Jamie Buhr

    Agreed, Jamie!

    No, I wasn’t being as cute as folks probably thought I was, as I find the disease of arrogant ignorance to be rather pervasive these days.
