16. The Naked Truth
A truth that dresses fashionably can’t be relied upon to
roll up its sleeves and get the job done as thoroughly as
one that’s naked.
Distinguishing between a cold, naked truth and a
well-dressed one is one of life’s great challenges.
Although clothes may be advisable at times, and
even required by law, it isn’t always possible to get
to the bottom of things if it’s concealed.
