People Known For Telling The Truth, The Truth, And Nothing But The Truth - Always

by fedor8 | created - 09 Dec 2012 | updated - 17 Sep 2018 | Public

Honesty is a rare commodity these days, so when we do come across it we should admire and appreciate it. These people couldn't tell a lie if they tried, so perfectly trained are they to be truthful.

I have decided not to include any politicians because everyone already knows that they always speak the truth.

This list will be gradually expanded, because there are so many truth-tellers out there. If you can offer me any suggestions, please do.

COMMENTS: The comments section changes introduced several years ago have basically ruined what used to be a fun interaction between list-maker and reader, hence I will be disabling comments on nearly all of my lists. (I said nearly: you're free to spend an hour perusing my other lists to find one that does allow comments.) So if you want to let me know what you think, PM me.

Oh no, wait. They've disabled PMs. So I guess there is no way you can share your views of my lists and reviews with me. That's called "progress".
