Assumptions

Todays quotation is from Speaking from among the bones by Alan Bradley.

“But he’s a prisoner! How could they keep him locked up like that?”

“Is he locked up – ” Dogger began.

“Of course he is,” I said, perhaps too loudly. “Behind a set of double doors!”

“-or is he being protected?”

Now I found myself speaking too quietly. “I hadn’t thought of that,” I admitted.

“No,” Dogger said. “People often don’t. One reads these stories in the daily press and jumps to conclusions. Facts are often in direct opposition to assumptions.”
