#256 / Wynton Marsalis Talks About The Truth

The September 4, 2017, edition of The New Yorker has an excellent article on Ken Burns, titled, "Mr. America." The title in the online edition is "Ken Burns's American Canon."

I liked the statement below, found in the article, which I think is exactly the right lesson for those interested in politics. That, I hope, means all of us. 

You might also like to refresh your recollection of six blind men from Indostan, who convey a lesson along the very same lines:

Burns frequently—almost hourly—says, “Sometimes a thing and the opposite of a thing are true at the same time,” paraphrasing a remark made by Wynton Marsalis, in “Jazz.”
