2. because smart people (and we don't mean just "IQ" here) are courageous, so they
always seek the tip of the "curling wave" face to face, no masks.
They don't hide behind guns, and bullies like churches and Limbaugh and Beck, or send phonies, like Palin, out to be their face to the world. They don't crank up robots running sockpuppets at various levels to repeat meaningless empty memes for them. They aren't afraid to ask their own questions, to HEAR those of others and to say that they don't know or are not certain, nor are they afraid to say that they are certain and WHY!
All of this, and more, is because smart people ARE smart because they LOVE truth.
