Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

Would we know the truth if we stumbled over it? Would we blame the truth for the condition of the human race, wretched as it is, but improving perhaps? I think many people confuse the facts with the truth of the matter. Fact is the noble brother of truth. But truth is the head of the family. A man may get his facts wrong - there probably was no deluge that covered the whole earth - and still be speaking the strict truth - God is love and preserves the righteous man. A poem may be truth, and more vivid than reality, but it is not merely factual or the world almanac would sell in the verse section.
