An apt quotation

“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.” (Harlan Ellison, quoted in the I newspaper).

My comment: More than ever in history has there been less excuse for being ill-informed and spreading fabrications and lies. We are almost inundated with news and opinion online, on TV and in the Press. What is missing in some people is approaching that news with critical intelligence. Is it really likely that the election was interfered with on a scale massive enough to be invisible to investigators? Is it really likely that State Republican officials are going to declare a fair election in favor of the opposing party if they know for a fact that all votes were valid and were counted and re-counted?

But we have heard all this multiple times. Three cheers for integrity and honesty! May everything come off the boil, peace of mind return and plodding common sense triumph.
