Department of Stories

1

Do you think, in this age of alternative facts, that this is a good slogan for a department store?

Ambrose Bierce says a story is a narrative, commonly untrue.

And here’s some more Ambrose that seems to suit our times:

Truth: an ingenious compound of desirability and appearance.

Faith:  belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge…

Impunity: wealth
