"My dear Kepler, I wish that we might laugh at the remarkable stupidity of the common herd. What do you have to say about the principal philosophers of this academy who are filled with the stubbornness of an asp and do not want to look at either the planets, the moon or the telescope, even though I have freely and deliberately offered them the opportunity a thousand times? Truly, just as the asp stops its ears, so do these philosophers shut their eyes to the light of truth."

What killed American Bridge--a Poll from the Year 2040.
The popularity of TV was pretty much parallel with the rise of drug culture. You know neither requires much intellectual input. hmmm Like comparing Dylan, Cohen,Simon etc. to contemporary music.
