From the News... Sort Of.

Just a reminder folks, whatever you see in the news today... check the date.  Actually, that rule of thumb worked very well in the newspaper era.  Not so much in the online age, when a story written on April Fool's Day seven years ago gets re-shared every six weeks to an audience that isn't expecting a practical joke.  I'm sure I'll see this again in my newsfeed once or twice by Christmas, shared by folks who are convinced that it's true.
