Everything you read in the [blogosphere] is absolutely true . . . except for the rare story of which you happen to have first-hand knowledge. ~ Erwin Knoll

Not long ago, a blogger lied about a story of which I happened to have first-hand knowledge.

The self-serving nature of his skewed recitation gave me greater insights into his character than any number of “truths” he might have shared.

His lies revealed his truth.

No rules.  Just write!

What about you?  Have you ever caught anyone misrepresenting “the facts” to gain support or garner sympathy for their cause? 

What did their lies and half-truths reveal about them and their values?
