Eugene H. Phillips: Tears and truths

Tears and truths

Quoting from your Jan. 5 editorial: “When John Boehner, the Ohio congressman who became speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives a year ago and just won another term, took office, much was made of his intense emotions, and the fact that he wasn’t afraid to shed a tear or two.”

My opinion: It is better to cry than to lie. Best example according to the Christian Bible at John 11:35: Jesus wept.
