Lin-Lin the Liar?

A curious thing has come to pass, dear reader. When your scribe blogged about "Lin-Lin the Time Traveler" four days ago, her web site clearly indicated that she was taking credit for "creating" Kids in Crisis. Your scribe found this to be something of an exaggeration, inasmuch as KIC was created some five years before Lin-Lin even came to Greenwich. But it seems that Lin-Lin herself reads your scribe's blog, because suddenly her web site no longer makes that claim.

Do you think, dear reader, that Lin-Lin has suffered a sudden attack of remorse for the way she stretched the truth? Don't count on it. Having been caught with her pants on fire, Lin-Lin has gone on the attack. An email from her opponent points out, quite rightly, that "in business, such a blatant distortion of the facts and falsehood on a resume would lead to termination of employment." But Lin-Lin apparently begs to differ.

"This behavior is shameful," she fulminates. She doesn't mean her own, of course; Lin-Lin knows she is perfect, just as her little circle of sycophants tell her each and every day. No, dear reader, Lin-Lin is indulging in a bit of projection here, and trying to cover up her own shameful behavior by saying that her opponent should be ashamed of calling attention to it. Excuse me? Is Lin-Lin back in kindergarten?

"I want it to stop," she says in her five-year-old tantrum voice. "He has accused me of lying." Well, not exactly. He, like your scribe, has merely pointed out the facts. Lin-Lin is the one calling herself a liar, it appears. Sometimes projection can boomerang right back at you.

In any war, the truth is always the first casualty. In the hostilities between Lin-Lin and her opponent (which she, be it noted, was the first to begin), the truth has suffered mightily up to this point. But truth will out, as Shakespeare pointed out over four hundred years ago. The Big Lie may work for a while, but in the end it crumbles under its own weight. See how it has fared in history at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Lie

And so Lin-Lin has revised her web site in an apparent effort to bring it somewhat closer to the truth. Or was it done merely to cover her tracks? Given Lin-Lin's track record in the Greenwich community over the years, your scribe is quite certain of the answer.
