Truth

Truth is a slippery animal. I was reading a poster on an elementary classroom wall today which described how history is codified, through first hand observation and records, through newspaper accounts, through government records and statistics. But even a universally agreed upon truth is not necessarily true.

When I was a child, my sixth grade teacher explained that opinion is what you read in the editiorial page of a newspaper and fact is what you find in an encyclopedia. Simple and wrong.

Truth is a baby’s laugh.
