Okay call me dense, but I'm not sure if you're waging this against me or the author of the article. I mean, I can take it, just curious.

I'm going to be charitable and assume he stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

I'm dumber for having read it.

This reminds me of something I read a while ago about the need to teach the arguments for liberalism, instead of assuming that the values will be picked up by osmosis from the environment.
