Quote of the day ...

We have all seen men who were quick-witted, accessible to ideas and handy with their management of them, whom we should yet hesitate to call intelligent; we are conscious that the term does not quite fit.

- Albert Jay Nock, The Theory of Education in the United States

Yet this is just the sort of person who is generally acknowledged to be intelligent by the media.
