Do You Really Believe Your Principles?

The lovers kiss

From Denny:  How many of us scrutinize ourselves as much as a presidential candidate?  Do we hide from the truth?  Do we rationalize we are one thing but suspect we might not measure up?

A case in point is the recent Penn State pedophile scandal.  Head coach Joe Paterno had to step down.  Why?  For decades he taught good character.  Yet, when his moment came he did not step up to the high principles he taught.


What matters is not the idea a man holds, but the depth at which he holds it. - Ezra Pound
