If...


...it sounds too good to be true then in probably isn't true.  On NPR this morning (You can look at it at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130544236&ft=1&f=1001) there was a discussion about some research that is being done at Stanford on key words that executives use when they are lying to the public and the press.  It is amazing how they have boiled deception down to a few things and that it is so very accurate.  When they use glowing terms.  When  they never answer the question and only talk about the qualifications of their experts.  All of the things that we have heard so very often in the past few years as our economy has gone down the toilet.  I think the article should be required reading for everyone and maybe we will all stop being so naive when we think that if a person is wealthy and successful that they are also being honest.
