    Most truth is fact, is quoted and has been written down over the generations. The fact is truth is bigger than fact. Maybe trust is the determining factor. But the ultimate truth we all find when we look in our hearts. Good one, Kelly (Report) Reply

    I often wonder if I would recognize it if existed

    Where do you find it?
    Where does it go?
    We'll have to ask this Poet
    For all he does know.

    Without some construct, fabricated or not, we would go nuts

    but it is real fun
    stretching our old tired brain
    keeping us worried!
