100 Words -- Thoughts Versus Deeds

In 1976, presidential candidate Jimmy Carter made some off the cuff remarks during a Playboy magazine interview to the effect that he "looked on a lot of women with lust" and had "committed adultery in my heart many times." Carter’s G-rated admissions created quite a stir. Now we have Donald Trump describing his seduction techniques in X-rated detail. What Carter only thought about, Trump actually did. He apologized and said he is a different man now, and anyway the Clintons did worse things. Any parent trying to teach a child right from wrong knows how far that excuse would get.
