I only post when there's a formatting issue George isn't comfortable with, so please pardon this intrusion from his out-law.
I get a lot of email forwards from friends and family, usually of a sensationalist nature, and they almost always turn out to be false. Before you hit that "forward" button, and certainly before you trust anything sent to you via email, I urge you to make a habit of checking Snopes.com first.
Snopes is an independent group (mostly a husband and wife) who make their living figuring out if a given urban legend is true or not. That's spilled over into the land of email forwards, and their resource is absolutely invaluable. If you want the straight dope on something, give them a try first; they're fair, objective, and hard-working.
Particularly helpful in this campaign season are their sections on the candidates. I know I can't even count any more the number of messages I've been helpfully sent that Barack Obama is the anti-Christ or that John McCain declared on 60 Minutes that he was a "war criminal".
Here in one convenient place are links so you can tell your mom/friend/wife/husband/neighbor to quit forwarding false information.
There is no entry for poor Joe Biden, apparently he doesn't register on enough radars to be worth a page of his own.
I'll slink back into the shadows now and turn thing back over to their rightful owner.
