    Who move within the circles of power?

    From the diarist, who is pretty much dripping with sarcastm here:

    The default response among Villagers when a fellow member of the establishment is caught lying is to insist that one shouldn't confuse innocently passing along misinformation with lying. Lying is such a charged term and it's just so uncivil to talk like that about our benign and congenitally well-intentioned leaders. (Clapper himself said, rather hilariously, that his answer was merely "erroneous.")

    But in this case, the lying is so straightforward and unequivocal, that no one seems to be able to come up with a coherent reason why Clapper should not be investigated and charged.

    I admit, I'm trying to muktitask as I supervise the dogs in the yard, but I think I understand him here. I hope he corrects me if Im wrong.

    But it seems to me that Justin's point is that its "cool" with the Villagers when Clapper commits perjury, not so much when it's Corzine.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
