Paul Ryan's recent exaggeration of his marathon running time reminded me of something I either read or was told many years ago. Beware the person who cheats at golf because they probably cheat in life, too. In other words, the person who cheats or misleads about the unimportant things is likely to do so for the important ones. A time of four hours, one minute and twenty-five seconds may not be the most memorable or easy to remember time for the only marathon a person ever ran in, but the four hour mark is. Ryan would have us believe that his exaggeration of a two hour and fifty minute time is a simple misstatement.
It appears his apple has a bad spot.
