"TRUTH BE TOLD . . ."

Yeah, they cracked the case open, worldwide open, truth be dancing-in-the-streets open. Ol' Ted Turner in his America's Cup winning days would rebel out, "Here's to gut feelings and those who still follow them."
Woodward and Bernstein gut-level did. The truest writers always do ~ follow the voice within, the one that pushes, edges, urges, quantum leaps all the farther-further . . . to the splendid way hunch/instinct/intuit holler-shouts out, "HEY ~ DO IT!".

Do you remember how Carl and Bob would do it ~ interrogate in bullseye precision to the aim of their well honed pen points getting-to-plain-truth theories? They outwardly presupposed as if this-was-a-fact-Jack, and even if your name wasn't Jack, well, if you weren't predisposed to dispute what they'd supposed, the fact held . . . firm and fast.

How do you do it?
Get to the truth of what matters in what/how you write?

with the Watergate Break-In.
Imagine that . . .

Some hard-earned advice: Do NOT confuse "the voice within" with any of those other voices, like the one telling you to push that old lady off the platform...

I heard the lady is doing OK now Ian == she caught the A-train, and is taking life for a fassssssst ride now, and will remain on track.

~ Absolutely*Kate, still hearing the mutter-mumble of "the voice within",
