Wisdom from Tennessee

Got some half price tix to see Tennessee William's "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" last eve. The play is fifty years old this year and never more salient. Here's a lesson that Mr. Williams might, should he rise from his grave, convey to the W, Rove and Co:
I think that deliberate, conscienceless mendacity, the acceptance of falsehood and hypocrisy, is the most dangerous of sins...I meant for the audience to discover how people erect false values by not facing what is true in their natures, by having to live a lie.
