Sharing the truth

That's right, I've just had a missionary experience.

I've e-mailed a Snopes link to my bishop's wife, e-mail forwarder extraordinaire.

Turns out they actually do still teach about the Holocaust in history classes in the UK. Somehow I suspected as much.

I do really appreciate it that there are people out there checking on all the wild rumors that circulate on the Internet. I just hope that certain people who do a lot of forwarding will feel the same way and not be offended that I didn't take them at their forwarded word. And that maybe next time they will make a little foray onto Snopes themselves before they press Send.

Good for you! My husband's aunt loves forwarding sensational, bleeding heart emails. When I have time, I forward the Snopes link, too.

Snopes and me are best buds. Especially the one about that girl needing surgery. Geez...
