Ignorance in "Oedipus"

I've has the pleasure of reading "Oedipus the King" before, but it was just as fun the second time around; I noticed a lot more during this reading, because I knew what I was looking for. Has anyone else read it? If you have, didn't you find it frustrating that everyone seemed so (ironically) blind? The truth behind Oedipus' birth was staring everyone in the face and no one saw it. Well, maybe they did know the truth and just didn't want to face up to it.

i definitley agree with katie on the the blindness of the characters. His birth reason was soo blatanly obvious and i found it hard that even an old author made the characters so ignorant to it.
