Aw, you make me feel dupid,
because I thought he was touching on related issues:
maybe not so enlightened, maybe more cynical,
but not impertinent questions?

Rather than merely making a "stupid article" section,
why not siphen off the points made in articles 
(good or bad, well- or ill-informed),
and suggest an alternative (world/) view

that way, allcomers are given a handle
 -- at their own level -- 
on what are:
	experienced realities
	projected problems
	intentions and visions

hopefully then more people are boot-strapped to enlightened thinking
and the signal::noise ratio, 
and the opinion-amplitude 8)
are greatly improved...
