As I was reading today, I came across a humorous bit:
“You’re obviously not one of them,” I said, “but my uncle claims there are a great many fools in Campania.”
“He is correct,” Salamon answered. “An astonishing amount. More astonishingly, it is exactly the same number as everywhere else. I would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between the fools of one country and the fools of another. Folly is our common bond.”
– from The Golden Dream of Carlo Chuchio by Lloyd Alexander
Ah yes. A good reminder that I am not immune. At least I’m in good company.
