By Christopher B. Daly
I was in temple today, accompanying my family to services for Yom Kippur. Part of the service included this passage, which I thought could serve many journalists well:
For failures of truth, O Lord, we ask forgiveness.
For passing judgment without knowledge of the fact,
and for distorting facts to fit our theories,
For deceiving ourselves and others with half-truths,
and for pretending to emotions we do not feel. . .
~Happy new year. May you be inscribed in the Book of Life.
