Timely Observational Advice

“Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die when you’re right in the middle of it.” – P.J. O'Rourke.

Patrick Jake "P.J."  O'Rourke, who turned 72 on Nov. 14, uses humor regularly in his role as a conservative political satirist, journalist and creative writer.  You often hear him as one of the respondents on the hit public radio show "Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me" (one of my weekly faves). 
         A native of Toledo, Ohio, who now makes his home "mostly" in Washington, DC, he's authored 22 books, including the 2018 bestseller, None of My Business: P.J. Explains Money, Banking, Debt, Equity, Assets, Liabilities, and Why He's Not Rich and Neither Are You.

O’Rourke said judging who and what people are all about is easy to determine through the writer's art of observation.  People will tell you anything,” he said, “ but what they do is always the truth.”
