Do you? We all do, to an extent. Some more than others. Some are little white lies, some are whoppers. Get ready for a brave new truth-telling world. Forget the obsolete, often unreliable lie detector. In today's Arizona Republic there's a story of a new technology called functional magnetic resonance imaging. A San Diego company, No Lie MRI, is marketing a machine that scans your brain's thoughts for lies. The company's CEO, Joel Huizenga, says "society is based on trust... we provide a service that verifies whether somebody is telling the truth." If you ask me, if this device really works, it's going to take all the trust out of society. Big Brother is edging ever closer.
