Letter to Editor by Alan Journet, Medford Mail Tribune, May 18th 2016
Being ignorant is no character flaw. Ignorance just means being uninformed about something. There is nothing wrong with being ignorant. None of us can know all about everything; inevitably we are ignorant about some issues. Luckily, we can overcome ignorance by committing to informing ourselves. The problem is not ignorance; the problem, abundantly demonstrated by Donald Trump, is being ignorant and thinking our opinion has merit.
