A friend sent me this quote (and link). In 1989 Frank Zappa, appearing on Arsenio Hall’s TV show, said, “Let’s not be too rough on our own ignorance, I mean, after all it’s the thing that makes America great. Because if we weren’t incomparably ignorant, how could we have tolerated the last eight years?” Frank was of course referring to “The Reagan Years.” Too bad he didn’t survive to witness the last eight years. You can watch Frank, via You Tube:
