Quote of the day–Herman Melville

A man of true science uses but a few hard words… whereas the smatterer in science… thinks that by mouthing hard words he understands hard things.

Herman Melville
[A similar thing occurs with people that know virtually nothing about guns. They talk of “assault weapons”, “high capacity clips”, and other nonsense things. Then these bigots claim they should be allowed to regulate such things that they don’t even know the vocabulary for.–Joe]
