Better to Keep Quiet

When I’m drivin’ in my car, and the man come on the radio

He’s tellin’ me more and more about some useless information

Supposed to fire my imagination…

I can’t get no satisfaction.

The Rolling Stones nailed it more than 50 years ago.

In my 20 years of driving to Chicago, I’ve occasionally had the misfortune of hitting a call-in radio show. It amazes me how many people are do eager to prove the old proverb in the negative, “Better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and prove it.”

When I was a kid, I was quiet. People thought I was intelligent. Now my writings reach 10s of thousands. I, also, have proved the theory in reverse.

Solomon tells us, “Even fools who keep silent are considered wise.”

Maybe it’s time for me to be silent for a bit and let us consider our day.
