While painting late at night I occasionally listen to a congressional hearing on C-Span. For some witnesses, testifying seems relatively easy. For others, such as those with something to hide, it’s more like a difficult game of chess. Many situations involving microphones— press conferences for example— have potential for offering similar challenges.
