A famous minister was delivering a speech at a banquet. He wanted to repeat the stories he had told at an event at a church in town the following day, so he asked members of the press to omit those stories from their newspaper accounts. A young reporter rushed his account to his paper and said, "The minister told a number of stories that cannot be published."
