I agree that we need to correct mistakes, however I do NOT agree that
our duty to do so is somehow enhanced if the "mistaker" wears a pointy
hat. My lord, if you, or anyone else, possesses knowledge that
surplants mine own, please hand it over; a gentle correction is
preferable to continued ignorance. Remember that we ALL have
opportunity for the crown.  Some are willing to train, some aren't;
some have talent, some don't; in rare cases, the two are combined.
