Today's Lateral Thinking question:

The Isle of Beguile is a place where the natives always lie and the visitors always tell the truth. Shadow is interviewing prospective candidates for police work, the requirements being that the person must be a truth teller. While interviewing a young man for the job, the applicant suddenly volunteers that the woman in line behind him had confided that she is a native. Is the young man in the interview qualified for the job? Explain your answer.

Please see me, if you were absent so that I might assign you a topic. This will be due next Monday.
