No one I know writes candid emails anymore. No one I know is unaware that he or she shares a computer with the Chinese and the Russians. “The Chinese are in your business,” Google’s Eric Schmidt told a group of businessmen not too long ago. The more prudent among us have deleted emails from way back. Now the record is what we say it is. The only thing truly transparent will be our lack of candor.
from the Washington Post
Only a fool or a youth
will hang out the entire truth.
Our backstories must
conceal or combust —
we all dread the glib cyber sleuth.
