QUOTH SOMEONE WHO APPARENTLY NEVER READ A WORD HE WROTE:

Egghead and Blockheads (MAUREEN DOWD, 9/17/11, NY Times)

Having grown up with a crush on William F. Buckley Jr. for his sesquipedalian facility, it's hard for me to watch the right wing of the G.O.P. revel in anti-intellectualism and anti-science cant.

I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University. -William F. Buckley, Jr.
