At a posh restaurant I was having dinner with a noted historian. We were discussing the relative merits of Woodrow Wilson, when my friend turned to me and said, “I’ll tell you all you need to know about the character of Woodrow Wilson. Why when he ran for president, his own mother didn’t even vote for him!”
“Is that true?”, I asked.
“Of course, it’s true,” he said. “I know whereof I speak.”
That ended the discussion. I didn’t realize until I got home that, although my friend spoke the truth, I had been tricked. How had I been mislead?
