Tennyson on Lies

Regarding French and European tendencies to eschew the good in Iraq (and America!) while exaggerrating the bad (not to mention German polls which are supposed to carry deep significance only if the population's pensée unique shines through), it is not useless to remember that yesterday wasthe birthday of Alfred Tennyson, the English poet (1809-1892) who said that
A lie which is half a truth is ever the blackest of lies.
