"The truth is in all of us, no matter what truth we’re talking about, whether it’s about having integrity in your life and being willing to admit mistakes and tell the truth under all circumstances, or whether it’s trying to track down the truth in political mumbo-jumbo, or whether we’re talking about the truth of whether there are aliens on this planet.
