quoth David Laws
: An idea must be expressed and debated before it can be finally classed
: 'stupid'. A 'doctor' in the 18th century would have considered the idea of
: NOT bleeding an ailing individual 'stupid'.

and concentrate on the least-stupid-appearing first, or do you insist that
all ideas get equal attention until PROVEN stupid?
