Humor and Truth

"AA doesn't get you saintly. It gets you sober. What you do after that is pretty much up to you. If nothing else, it will probably involve some laughter. Given the horror stories told at AA meetings, newcomers and outsiders often find that odd. But there was probably no greater expert on humour than E B White, and perhaps he said it best. 'There is often a rather fine line between laughing and crying,' he once wrote. '(Humour) plays close to the big hot fire which is truth.' And, as has been famously said, the truth will set you free."
