Solid Answers and Shameful Leaps

In conversation, when do you end up using more words without making any more sense: When more sure of your position or less so? When angry and upset or when happy and joyous? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 732).

I’m sure that every student who has been faced with an essay test knows full-well the answer to the above question. How glad you are when you are fully prepared for the exam and can give a trenchant response that is relevant and concise (and evidences personal integrity). At these times in full confidence you may even enliven your answer with a joyous witticism or two. How much in contrast is the fudged answer when you in misery ramble about trying to hide your ignorance. Politicians rate so low in ethics partly because they use the scared rabbit leap to irrelevant trails of pandering responses and shameful diversions.
