LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Dirty lies need clean remedies

When I was a child, my mother told me that if I lied, she would wash my mouth out with soap. Even at age 76, I remember the one and only time I lied to my mother, because she kept her promise.

So, here is my challenge to some math genius out there: Many news organizations have calculated the number of lies Donald Trump has told us since he became president. With that information, could someone calculate how many bars of soap would be needed to have washed out the presiden'ts mouth every time he has lied to us?
