The city up the road from Indianapolis was found to be the dumbest city in the nation (Fort Wayne). Then I thought to myself what is smart, I for one am not the smartest guy in the bunch (my wife is VERY intelligent) but I consider myself smart enough to be dangerous. I read, and keep up on current events (that interest me), I can appreciate art and music and have been seen enjoying the theater (other than movies) from time to time. I am a student of history and very Computer savvy. I got a D in psychology in college and math was never my strong point. I am street smart, can handle myself in adult situations (not the porn type) and was very good at contract language and translation during my union years. I can help my kid with homework, work under the hood of a car built before 1990 and operate a video switcher in live situations. While I do not consider myself in the top 10 of intelligent people I think I can hold my own in mixed company.

So what is smart? And who decided were the line is drawn?

PS SpellCheck was used on this and every post.

I have often pondered that question myself. Who decided what was smart and what wasn't. I consider myself average. I have a college eduation and I strive to continue learning yet I would not consider myself of above average intelligence. I know a little about a lot of things. Miss average everything.

I have a splendid response to this, but after rewriting it three times, I can't get my point across. I give up! I must be stupid.
