Sorry, that's another urban myth. False. There is no Lucius Traveler working for the ACLU or Col Jack Fessender. This urban myth is trying to play someone.

At times, it is very difficult to discern fact from fiction. Junk and hoax emails clog internet servers and can be as much of a nuisance as telemarketers, and email is the prime carrier of viruses. There are those who believe that Spam and “junk” email will be the demise of the Internet as a useful tool.

I have learned to be suspicious of everything that comes into my email inbox or that I read on the Internet. The following list contains some sites I have found that aid in discerning fact from fiction, frauds, and hoaxes. Some of them are just plain fun to read and wonder how anyone can fall for them. Be skeptical when you receive emails with claims and stories that are too good or bizarre to be true (a dead giveaway). A sibling of mine is fond of quoting David Gerrold; “I think, therefore I doubt.”

Hope you enjoy,

It is similar to this load of shinola:

WASHINGTON, March 14 2004 - Federal investigators are scrutinizing television segments in which the Bush administration paid people to pose as journalists praising the benefits of the new Medicare law, which would be offered to help elderly Americans with the costs of their prescription medicines.

The videos are intended for use in local television news programs. Several include pictures of President Bush receiving a standing ovation from a crowd cheering as he signed the Medicare law on Dec. 8.

The materials were produced by the Department of Health and Human Services, which called them video news releases, but the source is not identified. Two videos end with the voice of a woman who says, "In Washington, I'm Karen Ryan reporting."

But the production company, Home Front Communications, said it had hired her to read a script prepared by the government.

So we have choice of a flip-flop Democrat or a secretive and deceptive Republican

I'll take the secret and deceptive Republican, thank you very much. At least he stands on one side of issues, rather than both sides. :D

You'll find lots of the stuff on the net is horse puckey. I was taken in the other day about a fictitious confrontation between Secretary Rumsfeld, and Sen. Kennedy. The piece sounded so good, that I bought it without checking it out. Happens all the time. TracGunny's list is a good place to start debunking some of the easier and well known road apple piles. Good luck, Skipper.
