A Doctor in the House?
A couple of weeks ago, my cyberfriend Malcolm Pollack mentioned a cynical remark that he had made as a teenager:
Everyone needs a pack of lies to live by, and if you'd rather not create your own there's no shortage of people who'll be happy to hand you theirs.In response, another cyberfriend, Kevin Kim, commented:
Nice to make your acquaintance, Dr. House.Cultural Philistine that I am, I had no idea what Kevin was referring to . . . but also, as that cultural Philistine, didn't much care. Yesterday in a sermon, however, I heard another reference to Dr. House, this time to his statement that "People always lie."
"So, that's what Kevin was referring to," I found myself thinking, and resolved to find out more.
I now know a tiny bit more, courtesy of Wikipedia, but if anybody would like to save me some time and link me directly to some especially fine You Tube clip of Dr. House at his best, I'd appreciate it.
