Ignorance Is Bliss 

Dear Editor,

John Sabo's Opinion piece "Let Beck Shine A Light" (Source, 10-1) leaves me no choice but to congratulate him for having the stomach to listen to the Fox News "talk jocks" (David Brooks quote) and no doubt Rush too - his stomach must be cast iron! Sabo criticizes the Source writers who, "continue to bash these guys and this network," justifiably so. If he's looking for sympathy I doubt that he'll get it. He ends with, "Ah, ignorance is bliss." "Ignorance is bliss" is taken out of context from Thomas Gray's, "On a Distant Prospect of Eton College." What Gray said was "... where (not if) ignorance is bliss, 'Tis folly to be wise." Sabo, perhaps?
