Quote of the Day------Goodreads

Sometimes skulls are thick. Sometimes hearts are vacant. Sometimes words don't work.

James J. Frey

On January 26, 2006, Oprah Winfrey berated author James Frey on her talk show for presenting his bestselling book A Million Little Pieces as a memoir when parts of it were found to have been exaggerated or made up. Oprah, who had promoted Frey’s debut told him she felt "duped" and that, "more importantly, I feel that you betrayed millions of readers." Frey acknowledged that a report claiming he’d made up parts of the memoir was accurate. A note to readers from Frey was included in later editions of the book in which he apologized for fabricating parts of the book 

Boy this quote could surely be aimed at the person residing in the White House!
