I have seen more rank idiocy spouted by members of the mainstream press/media since the announcement of the Pope's abdication than I can remember at any time in the last ten years. It's like every pundit has decided to take stupid pills all at the same time. Here's a tip for members of the press and media. If you don't know anything about the subject under discussion PLEASE resist the temptation to pontificate on the matter. To paraphrase Lincoln, "it's better to let everyone think you are a fool than to open your mouth (or start typing) and remove all doubt."
