: Qx: It's better to base one's opinions on facts rather than go ahead and state opinions without much in the way of any forethought. Something you have continuously done.

SDF: Yeah, it amazed me, too, to read Jacobson's above statement. What SHOULD one base ones opinions upon? Facts? Falsehoods? Guesses? Innuendo? What was the point again?
