There is no shame in basic ignorance; we are all ignorant about some things, 
but WILLFUL ignorance is something else entirely. This is when a person is 
presented with the proper facts from reputable sources and chooses to remain 
ignorant. Unfortunately many people in this country are now choosing willful
ignorance as a way of life. They prefer to not let facts get in the way of a 
good story. It has been said that a person is entitled to his own opinion 
(opinions are like "rectums," everyone has one) but no one is entitled to 
his own facts.

Glad to hear that.  I was just about to offer you my place in front of the
wall I was beating my head against.  It's no softer now, but I was going to
offer nonetheless.
