This is a Mark Twain aphorism:
The trouble ain't that there is too many fools, but that the lightning ain't distributed right.
This is apparently intended to be easily understood, but the connection between fools and lightning is not clear to me.
Is this based on some idiom? Is it to do with being struck by lightning or lightning as a metaphor for a flash of inspiration or luck? I'm leaning towards the former, as lightning must have been a more serious nuisance in those days than it is today, with lightning rods and all.
