PM Quote of the Day — Edith Sitwell

I am patient with stupidity, but not with those who are proud of it.

I had been familiar with the concept of vincible and invincible ignorance, but I had not been familiar with the more full taxonomy of ignorance.  I especially liked these variants, especially in the context of the quote:

Ignorance stemming from making little or no effort is termed crass or supine; it removes little or no guilt. Deliberately fostered ignorance is affected or studied; it can increase guilt.
