Op Ed

Reason.com - 38 Studios: Curt Schilling's Crony Capitalism Debacle.
Former Gov. Carcieri hoped 38 Studios would be the cornerstone of a new video game tech hub in Rhode Island. Instead, the fallout from the collapse and squandered taxpayer dollars will make the state unlikely to cut any more of what WPRI's Ted Nesi describes as "special, one-off deals with individual companies...picked by a certain group of people in state government."

Actually it's funny you mention that because until recently I had no idea but after a political discussion at a party (an "old school" financial professor attended) I started doing my own research. I thought I was informed already but learned that my knowledge of things was rudimentary and slanted by misinformation.

this, singe-handedly, is the biggest problem with democracy - people who have no idea, and worse, think their opinion is the last word and don't know that they don't know!

the single greatest piece of wisdom i've ever come across is from plato who said that wisdom is knowing that you know nothing. far too many people get an idea in their heads, and whether through ego, insecurity, or ignorance, refuse to admit they could be wrong, and the end result is that buffoons like W and a whole host of moronic congressmen get elected.

i've always thought those get out the vote ads were disingenuous because their is something worse than not voting - a misinformed vote.
