As Empty As An American Head

I once had a bumper sticker on the back of my car that read, “Education Lights a Fire,” or words to that effect. But someone took the trouble to carefully and thoroughly peel it off.
And I must say, nothing in my own education ever prepared me to understand the kind of blind fear and virulent stupidity that would be required to make someone want to do a thing like that. I still shake my head when I see that tattered blank space, as leeringly and malignantly empty as an American head.
That act spoke the very volumes it doesn't read.
