Let sleeping dogs lie. Let sleeping dogs prevaricate. Let sleeping dogs distribute their deceptions. Let sleeping dogs dish out dishonesty the way politicians deal in distortion. Let sleeping dogs traffic in tall tales while wagging their tails. But why do sleeping dogs get all the glory? Is it because, when they awake, their canine teeth rip through flesh and fabric? I think sleeping dogs hired a public relations firm to distribute their message. Because they just want to sleep. They’ve told us, over and over, they just want to sleep. And if we awaken them, there will be hell to pay. Those dogs aren’t messing around. They will bite you. They will clinch their jaws and won’t let go. My advice is this one simple truth: let sleeping dogs lie.
