Newsday Op-ed: Mass Ignorance vs. Democracy & Liberty

Newsday published an op-ed of mine today on how ignorance is subverting democracy and liberty.   Some people may dispute the porn ratio in the piece; my hunch is that the number errs significantly on the low side.    The article is being distributed nationwide by the Los Angeles Times/Washington Post syndicate, so it may pop up in […]
