Down this way, ignorant has a connotation that others may not pick up.

To be ignorant means that one is unaware of facts, but to be ignorant also means taking that lack of knowledge and acting in a rude, boorish, offensive manner.

Now we can look to the dictionary and see a reference to David Angus’ comments in Lawrence Martin’s stroke piece on Peter Mackay, DDS:

"I think Peter's got the opportunity to be the regional powerhouse in taking an area of Canada from shithouse to lighthouse."

That’s the epitome of ignorance in too many ways to waste time explaining.

Let’s just let the words speak for themselves.
