In short, herein seems to lie the difference between idiots and madmen, that madmen put wrong ideas together, and so make wrong propositions, but argue and reason right from them: but idiots make very few or no propositions, and reason scarce at all.
They really need to teach a course on logic at ole miss. Seems some of the players on the basketball team knelt during the national anthem to protest against the pro Dixie rally that had taken place on campus that day. The protestors at those rallys sang dixie, carried confederate flags. I can completely understand the basketball players wanting to make a statement against that. But ah, the national anthem represents the union, the side that freed the slaves, it represents those union soldiers that died bringing Dixie down. Knelling during it is a pretty stupid way to make the point they wanted to make.
