"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

Really interesting article. Very relevant and, sadly, true. I'll be honest, I don't think much about my information filters. I've developed them over the years as I do research; but now I'm at the point where it is second nature and I automatically filter reliable and unreliable data. How can I pass on to someone else what I have a hard time consciously expressing anymore? And, if I don't think about the filters, what do I let get by them without thinking?In many ways, ignorance is bliss. With a dearth of information, we do have an easier time distinguishing the bunk from the good stuff.
