It's always bugged me that although most (or all) of us highly value honesty as a desirable moral virtue, we may not be equipped to handle ruthless honesty as we think we are. I know this is a serious issue that can lead to long and deep discussions. I'm choosing to take a more humorous approach, instead, pointing you to this piece by one of my favorite authors, A.J. Jacobs, the author of "The Know-It-All" and "The Year of Living Biblically". Enjoy!
