Mr. Beck owned up to embellishing the truth just a wee little bit. You know, for flavor.

I sense an opening. Like the witch-burning scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, what comes next is Glenn Beck admitting that he smeared a junior-high school step dance troupe because they looked militant.

Perhaps we should all encourage this new attitude from Beck. Maybe the media should conspire to ask him if he maybe, possibly embellished the truth a little bit there. And maybe they should follow up on that whole "white culture" remark while they're at it.

Can you help us out?
