Finally It's Over!

Everyone lies right? Don't question is rhetorical. It is a sad commentary on society to see yet another public official finally admit that they have lied. It's sad and yet funny at the same time because it never seems to work for them, yet they keep on doing it! I was born in the early 60's when their was still the wisp of the illusion that was the 40's and 50's when people were truthful. It wasn't the reality but at least people seemed more honest, I'm even sure some were, but the aspiration of civility was still there. The 70's came and it all evaporated into the either. Greed and power take over and people feel above reproach, they do something to screw up the good things they have and to cover they just lie. It's a standard operating procedure, and why not... what is there to lose? The practice goes all the way to the top, President Clinton did it several times, the Catholic Church did it for decades... Where ever there is power and advantage telling lies is just the norm and its no wonder that people no longer respect politicians and religious leaders.

I guess its good that there are laws and that the rule of law seems to withstand the test of time. Today the law came to Detroit's rescue and ended a long and sad tragedy that has been playing out there over the last few years. It's tragic that this young guy who had so much promise had to cut a deal before he would do the right thing.
