Poetry: If Truth Is the Lure, Humans Are Fishes by Jane Hirshfield

It has been really slow lately, which is a great thing.  It means there are not high profile lies and cheats on the loose.  I found this peom on the web that seems to speak to the content of the website.  She will be appearing along with Ekman and others at the Being Human 2012 on March 24, 2012, between 9:00 am - 5:30 pm.

 If Truth Is the Lure, Humans Are Fishes

Under each station of the real,

another glimmers.

And so the love of false-bottomed drawers

and the salt mines outside Kraków,

going down and down without drowning.

A man harms his wife, his child.

He says, “Here is the reason.”

She says, “Here is the reason.”

The child says nothing,

watching him led away.

If truth is the lure, humans are fishes.

All the fine bones of that eaten-up story,

think about them.

Their salt-cod whiteness on whiteness.

Costas on Sandusky Interview

Where to start and when to end. 

I've had to deal with cases with these types of allegations and they are hard to stomach.  Sandusky REALLY believes he has done no wrong, and his done more good than harm- and the good should make up for the misdeeds. Unfortunately many abusers like Sandusky do not understand the long term affects of a "relationship" with someone who is too young to understand what is going on- this is why we call them predators.  Unfortunately this is a classic case of a pedophile who groom victims.

 From Sandusky own words, notice how he can confidently answer some questions (meaning he has a different internal definition of "abuse" than you or I) while others he has to repeat the questions (meaning it is a sensitive question and he needs more time to think of an answer).

When Bob asks him, "Is that it?" after Sandusky says he should not have showered with the boys, Sandusky responds, "That is what hits me the most."  In this statement he lets us know there are other things that he should not have done, but the worst occurred in the shower.

When talking about what happened int he shower with the young boy, Sandusky uses the words "POSSIBLY snapping a towel or horse play" to try to explain the sound.  Whenever a person uses 'fuzzy' language like possibly, maybe, perhaps it is likely not true- it either happened- snapping a towel- or did not...

If you hear the entire interview there are several hot spots...◦

Breaking News: Payton Manning Not Likely to Return to Football According to his Undecided Body Language

Living in in the Indianapolis area this story hits home- especially when it is clear that his body language is showing more than his words.

The video has been removed from YouTube and all the local television stations. Here is a link to a story about the interview, http://www.wthr.com/story/15952595/peyton-manning-i-miss-playing

In an interview in the Colt's locker room last week Peyton spoke with reporters. The one thing that is clear is Peyton Manning is no closer to knowing if the surgery has worked. He continues to give his strongest impression with his body language and the obvious shoulder shrugs. Shrugs are the biggest sign of indecisiveness. He does not think he will be able to show any improvement by December, and in February the Colts have what may be their biggest decision in the franchise's history.

Below are some key statements from Peyton Manning in quotes, where he clearly shrugs. (See if you can see the statements where he shrugs with his feet.)

“...I miss playing...”

“...I’d love to...”

“...go play again...”

He is unsure about these statements.

“...in December...” doesn’t appear he expects to be any better to be able to play…

“...hope things are better...”

Concerning the one year part of the contract, “...my recommendation...”

“...fair for the Colts to make their decision...”

“Sure hope we are better”

The statement analysis says even more, when combined with the nonverbals.

Also it is important to note, it has also been released that the neck surgery was because he has lost some arm strength.

Ruth and Andrew Madoff on 60 Minutes

What I find interesting is when they are both asked simple questions and do not have an answer, especially Ruth. What this tells me is they definitely had a clear goals to do these interviews, and when they were asked questions that where not "practiced" they lost their concentration, slowed their speech as they had to think what would be the best answer to the question.

The son was clear about not knowing what was going on, but whenever he is asked about his father's statements, there is no details- just generalities of what was said.  They appear practiced.

See all the interviews at CBS, click Ruth and Andrew Madoff interviews.
