Your Week Ahead: They say that if you are going to tell a lie you should always keep it as close to the truth as you can. Make it vary, only where it must. Don't tell a whopper. Don't create a shaggy dog story. Just produce an alternate version of reality with an extra little bit added in or snipped out. But why would any of us ever want to tell a lie? We would only have such an impulse if we felt that the truth was compromising. That somebody, somewhere, would react badly when they heard it. Full, if delicate, disclosure is wisest, this week.
