Al Gore and John Kerry. Great Americans who have served their country, they believe in what is true even if the majority hate their ideals down here and they have lived lives of significance. They have went through ordeals and become wiser men. Unfortunately they're not always appreciated for that wisdom down here in the dirty south.

O'Rourke, Ray Bradbury, John Allen Paulos, Loren Eiseley, Paul Simon, Phil Plait, Robert Carroll, Martin Gardner, John Fogerty, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, John von Neumann, LInus Pauling...

...and thousands more who are widely and rightly loved and honoured.

I share your admiration of these two men. Have you ever met Stephen King? I have - I've been to his house in Bangor. What a hoot he is. He has a great sense of humor. A good family man too.

Yep, I get it. I don't agree with either of your characterizations, but I get it.

Actually I'm inclined to suspect anybody who takes a firm position for ideological reasons is likely to be a wacko.
