My late mother never heard an adage in which she could not find a basic truth. For her, the idea of hiding in plain sight was actually contained in the old saying, “there are none so blind as those who will not see.”
Now, I have always opposed the notion of sweeping generalizations. I have subscribed to the idea that every human being is unique, I have rejected the impulse to categorize people according to their race, religion, gender, economic status or sexual orientation. That means of course, that I am qualified to be a commentator on public radio.
