There’s an awful lot of yapping going on, but I don’t see too many tackling the issue of the lie. Because, as I said to a friend in a recent e-mail, like it or not, HE LIED. If you take away whatever noble motives he may have had for doing so (if you even dare to dress it up like that to begin with), that one naked, inescapable, irrefutable fact remains. The lie. And it’s starting to stink just a bit.
