I can’t believe people would visit here, become aware of what I do, and then fire off an e-mail telling me that education isn’t necessary because – I kid you not – George Washington and Joe the Plumber represent the same sort of person in public life. Also, a classical education isn’t necessary because the same academy which teaches classics also teaches feminism.
You probably can guess how violent my first reaction was. I wrote something pretty bullying in response, but nowhere near as nasty as I wanted to make it.
I’m gonna have to learn to control my temper, this sort of crap is only going to get worse as this blog finds readers. But I don’t know that I really should have to control my temper over idiocy like this in a just world.
