MUCH, MUCH, MUCH To My DELIGHT!

Dear Tweeters: The Smart Thing Can Backfire

If the smart thing isn't the helpful thing, the smart thing may just be the backfiring thing.

If ignorance is bliss why do all thinking people such as scientists, doctors, teachers, etc. work their whole lives to become "less ignorant"?
