Quote of the Day: Malice vs Stupidity

In honor of the superintendent and governing board of the Scottsdale Unified School District…

“Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity. But don’t rule out malice.”

Via John Groseclose and Wikipedia. Commonly known as “Hanlon’s Razor,” or “Heinlein’s Razor,” the expression is attributed in parts to science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein (via “Logic of Empire,” 1941), and author Peter W. Singer (Wired for War, 2009).
