Happy Belated, George Orwell!

I can't believe I missed George Orwell's birthday! Luckily, The Writer's Almanac reminded me. He was born on June 25, 1903 in Motihari, India and wrote two of my favorite novels: Animal Farm and 1984. Those novels, I feel, are uncomfortably relevant today in the United States. The Writer's Almanac selected a quote that gave me chills...
“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
Ya heard?
