Munn always says a bit less than he, in his heart o' hearts, feels is necessary. Better to leave something unsaid than to say too much. He's like the goddamn Sphinx, Munn is. Speaks in riddles. Would've spoken in rhymes, had he belonged to an earlier era. But speaking in rhymes, these days, would be a tad obvious. Particularly for Munn, master of opacity. I was flattered when Munn took me into his rare confidence and offered me raw sincerity. Didn't seem to be holding himself back at all. Munn won't bullshit you. If he ACKNOWLEDGES your hide, you're lucky.
