Susan Sontag dead at 71

"We live in a culture in which intelligence is denied relevance altogether, in a search for radical innocence, or is defended as an instrument of authority and repression. In my view, the only intelligence worth defending is critical, dialectical, skeptical, desimplifying."

Amen.

Update: Of course, the erudite scholars with the monopoly on Christian values over at Little Green Footballs see things a little differently. Stop over for loads of data reaffirming the strong correlation between stupidity and cruelty.
