At a recent writing class, we were asked to identify ourselves with a one-word description and explain why we used that term. Many of the participants used terms like "peaceful," "harmonious" or "balanced" - terms that indicated a person with a surpassingly transcendent understanding of the universe.
I had an interesting exchange recently. It was at an "End of the World" party and liquor flowed freely. And as alcohol is wont to do, tongues were loosened and lo and behold, philosophers were created out of whole cloth!
After the response to my last column, I think it only fair to warn those readers who experienced those violent reactions that this one will contain more "lies from a dishonorable man."
