Einstein Quote of the Day

I think that only daring speculation can lead us further and not accumulation of facts.

Now that's a quote that I'm sure makes more sense in its context.  So much of what I hear in the media is from people who are really good at speculation and not looking at facts.  Or maybe it's because people don't really make "daring speculations" at all, but merely take other people's misuse of data, or refuse to consider data at all and make pronouncements that are garbage.  (I'm still grouchy over the election results.)
