Words of wisdom from our weekly bulletin


Deceit is the evil cousin of truth. Integrity, trust, transparency and dependability are the sweet relatives of truth. A counterfeit item can be as subtle or blatant as the ability of the forger or the naiveté of the recipient will allow. Witness the shoddy, sometimes dangerous toys and foods foisted on the American public by one of our foreign trading partners. Counterfeit involves fraud, omission, falsehood and lies.
