Daring Liars

LiarThe men the American public admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.

-- H. L. Mencken (1880-1956), journalist, satirist, and freethinker, The Smart set, Volume 68 (with George Jean Nathan) p 49 (1922)
