Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

Too good to be true?

When the impossible happened, it used to be good enough to catch it on film. Nowadays, not so much. A hundred years after Leni Riefenstahl was born the techniques of propaganda films have become commoditized. There is even a new coinage on the internet for it: Fauxtography.

So, is what happens to this baseball bat real or a fake?

You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There's nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak,
But if you feel like I feel,
Please let me know that it's real.

Sometimes it is hard to tell what is true. But that is not a reason to refuse to make a choice. Rather it is a reason to choose wisely and learn by your mistakes.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits.
