The Paradox of Non-Fiction

One may discover there is more truth in a fiction story than in some documentaries.
This seems to reflect negatively on "non-fiction" writers. But, perhaps it is the fiction writer's inability to leave reality behind that is the actual culprit. Or, maybe sometimes we simply expect too much from our fellow mortals.
Well, I'm sure glad that has been put to rest. Now we can move on to greater things with which to occupy or minds. No, wait. I'm sorry, but I do expect non-fiction to be as honest as it can be translated into words.  Okay, now we can move on.
