Information wants to be free; so does misinformation

The UMass Dartmouth student's report of being investigated by Homeland Security was a hoax.

Unfortunately, this sort of bubbamiesa (Yiddish for old wives' tales) has a long shelf life. Some people will always believe it. Tin hat wearers are walking around the country who firmly believe that the Dan Rather story about Bush was accurate though fake.

That plastic turkey Bush was supposed to have served the troops is still flying around. There's plenty of life in that old bird. The last sighting was by Tim Blair, seventeen months after its first appearance.
