For my Brother, the Scholar, Freaking Cataract Surgeon

Read this line today, and thought of my brother.

A man who has lived in many places is not likely to be decived by the local errors of his native village; the scholar has lived in many times and is therefore in some degree immune from the great cataract of nonsense that pours from the press and the microphone of his own age.

-C.S. Lewis, “Learning in War-Time”

And by the way, I think I am going to start calling the Internets “the great cataract of nonsense.”
