Truth is upsetting

This is in response to the letter “Unleavened bile” (Oct. 20) from Jim Harger, regarding my letter “Welfare moochers” (Oct. 14).

I'm sorry I stepped on Mr. Harger's sensitive toes. I see that the truth has upset him; it usually does to those who are guilty of an offense they themselves have committed.

Some people just can't handle truth. I prefer to be hated for telling the truth than to be loved for telling a lie.
