Between you & me, I don't care much for the word idiot. In addition to the fact that it's usually pretty insulting, it has a difficult psychological history: people who had a "mental age" of three years or less & an IQ less than 30, were considered "idiots." That classification has fallen into disfavor, but the aspersion still stings.
Why, then, do a show about the word? To challenge any lingering conceptions? To redefine the word for better usage? To confront those who use the insult with the requisite disgust & scorn? Um. No.
Actually, I just found a lot of good songs about idiots. I don't think I have the energy to challenge, redefine, or confront. I can barely remember to floss!
Listen to a show full of idiots, including yours truly, tonight from 9-11pm eastern on 93.9 fm WLXU in Lexington & online at the Lexington Community Radio website. I'd say you'd be an idiot to miss it, but I'm not that kind of guy.
