    Stupid versus ignorant: People sometimes use the words "stupid" and "ignorant" and don't understand the difference between them. Stupid is when a person willingly acts in a way that defies logical reason. Their behavior doesn't make sense. Ignorance is a lack of knowledge of the situation. In reading these Speak Outs, I see where some callers lack knowledge. They're not stupid. They're ignorant. They really don't take the time to research what they are talking about and look at the other person's side. People would be more willing to read something when the caller takes the time to present both sides of an issue. It makes you look more intelligent. I've seen opinions in here sometimes that come out of political bias or religious bias. Take more time to dig the facts out from many different sources.
