There seems to be a lot of Lying going on. Maybe it is not as bad as we thought. “Does this make me look fat?” is the classic example. A simple “no, you look wonderful” is what I am looking for. And Lying does not work. AT ALL. I tried it with my Mother and various Policemen when I was growing up. They seemed to know the truth even before I tried lying. They were so smart. My email “inbox” is full of lies. I do not even read them. I delete them. Easy. I now suspect that everything I am told is a lie. That might be a very safe assumption. So, I turn to Sir Winston Churchill in this time of political unrest. He tells me “Truth is so precious that she should always be attended with a bodyguard of lies” and “There are a terrible amount of lies going about the world. And the worst of it is that half of them are true.”
