What If a paradox leads us to a conclusion that may seem senseless, but arrives at the truth? 

The hat I brought with me to the Bahamas reads: “The beatings will continue until morale improves.” I thought it a humorous paradox.

Then I have beer with a young fellow who looks at my hat and then me and says : “That’s not funny or appropriate.” It turns out he is gay and has just been beat up because of it. Not so funny anymore…or appropriate.

Perhaps like bombing Syria?
