Sowell is right again, and especially by adding the ? to the title.
Being in my 70's I recall hearing when I was a child "Crime Doesn't Pay". And I grew up thinking that to tell a lie was a crime just like other crimes. No so is it , unless you actually swear to tell the truth. ***When Obama is sworn in what would be wrong if the Judge added "I promise to tell the truth and nothing but the truth." ? ****
