Aesop, Boggled

Daily Draw: Shaman's Oracle ~ Dancer of Lies

I've ragged Rob unmercifully about a 600 pound bass story he told me when we were dating. I looked up the subject this morning and there has been groupers, halibut, and bass landed that size. Who knew? I made my apologies to Rob.

Do you remember the Aesop fable about the Little Boy Who Cried Wolf? The young shepherd made up wolf stories and when one did menace his herd no one believed him. The story made a deep impression on the child I was and has pretty much kept me honest.

We have a sitting president who opens his mouth and lies flow forth, even when lies serve no purpose whatsoever. The havoc of the long term consequences on impressionable minds boggles.
