The Truth About Lying
Our Lives Are Filled With Untruths. But Why Do We Lie, And How Can We Tell When Others Are Full of It?

Right now, someone somewhere is lying about “having plans tonight.” Meanwhile, someone else is discovering that his or her spouse has methodically concealed an affair. And take a look at the news of the past couple of weeks: Barry Bonds was charged with perjury. City employees were accused of fabricating companies to siphon taxpayer money. Lies are all around us.
