Stupid Bumper Stickers

So, I'm waiting in line in the Starbucks drive-through the other morning and the dude in front of me had a bumper-sticker that said something like, "I think, therefore I don't listen to Rush." After chuckling for a moment, I thought about how people who do actually think aren't afraid of listening to conflicting points of view. In fact, it seems that thinking people often engage opposing ideas and find that this engagement actually deepens their own thought by confirming or broadening their ideas.
