What ever happened to ethics? Why do so many people resort to lies? Political figures, athletes scientists, church leaders and so many others have been accused of lying in the past. Just about everyone who chooses to lie for his or her cause eventually gets caught up in their own lies.
If history is an indicator, perjury and obstruction of justice cases appear to send ripple effects to civility. An old friend of mine tells me that as he gets older he sees society appearing to break down.
