Take a Moment This Weekend

I had to come across excerpts in a few places before I actually made time to read David Gelernter's piece about the intellectualization of the elite. It's too good to excerpt. If you haven't read it, yet, make time to do so.

I'm cognizant that Gelernter's message hits me at an opportune time, just now, but even adjusting for that, I found the essay downright inspiring.

Justin, I think the following quote taken from Mark Shea's blog is particularly appropriate not only to Gelernter's article, but to the current situation regarding the war on terrorism:

"A nation that draws too broad a difference between its scholars and its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards, and its fighting done by fools." - Thucydides
