Suffering Fools Less Gladly
I have been a bit grumpy at people lately. In particular, I have told people who should be capable of knowing better when they're being foolish. As I said in a post on File 770 earlier today, ignorance can be cured; foolishness is much more difficult.

I sort of understand more and more why Bruce Pelz coined Special Rule #2 ("Shut up, Kevin") for me when I showed up all bright-eyed and eager at Worldcons and Westercons in the mid 1980s. I hope that in time it became clear that I was suffering more from ignorance than foolishness.

(As those of you who have been here for a long time know, my license place is a tribute to the memory of Bruce Pelz.)

Current Mood: grumpy
