Combatwords January 21, 2011: Simpletons

Not all simpletons are stupidtons. I know this because I'm a connoisseur of genius. I enjoy the scatterbrains, hardasses, high performing genius, but actually despise one category: the simpletons. These are the people who run cutting edge research labs, dominate business in your area, teach school to children—simpletons aren't inherently dangerous, but when society uses them improperly, disaster is not far away. Life is complicated, but they seek to apply Occam's Razor like it was the latest Gospel of Jesus. So pick a simpleton, write about one, their origins; whatever.
