When Americans insult me for rare candor, I must laugh. You beg for the truth and complain when it’s served. It would be unwise to expect your cultural forebears to have the same equitable spirit that formed your union.

We will either tell you a thing or refuse to comment. Never complain, never explain?

The middle class lie. They think they’re subtle.
