Blog Highlight: The True Verdict

"Oh! what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!" Sir Walter Scott

This is a short post today-- soon I'll be getting back into the swing of things when it comes to regular updates on the blog. I wanted to highlight a blog that interests me a good deal, and if you fancy the subject matter on 'From one pawn to another,' you'll feel the same. The blog is http://truthinthelaw.blogspot.com/, and is primarily run by a real-life friend of mine named Peter Romary. I won't go into Peter Romary's credentials, you can find them for yourself on the blog's sidebar-- a cliff-notes version is essentially he is a very successful lawyer, is knighted, probably was a lead guitarist for an English band at one point and is maybe in a three-letter intelligence agency. Particular posts to skim off the bat are "Eye Contact: The Myths About Lying; The Truth About Deepening Your Love!" and "Hot Dog! How Deception Detection Experts Caught Rep. Weiner With His Pants Down." Give it a look.


Psychoanalyst Walter Langer wrote, "People will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it."

  1. Your friends blog actually sounds interesting, which is funny because usually I see these blog shout outs for friends as a cheap way to try to redirect some traffic. :P
