    A politician and his wife were having dinner at a fashionable restaurant. Since he was well known, a great many people stopped at their table and shook hands and spoke. Each time, the politician would tell his friends about his recent fishing trip.
    After awhile his wife whispered to him, "I think it's nice that so many people stop to speak to you. And I see nothing wrong with you telling them about your fishing trip. But, each time you tell about the fish you caught, you change the size of the fish and the number. Why in the world do you do that?
    "Well," he said to his wife. "I know all of those people. They are voters and I want them to trust me and take me at my word. So, I make a practice never to tell them more than I think they will believe."
