"I’ve got a new year’s resolution and a new slogan for the country.
The resolution may be difficult, but it’s essential. Americans must resolve to be smarter going forward than we have been for the past several years.
Look around you. We have behaved in ways that were incredibly, astonishingly and embarrassingly stupid for much too long.
...It’s time to stop being stupid."
-- Bob Herbert, promoting the same idea this blog has - but with a very different focus from the man who, this year, was best known for seeing imaginary phallic symbols - in The New York Times.
