It's spread like wildfire — politics, sports, entertainment. When will it ever end? I don't know if I should believe Wolf Blitzer or Sean Hannity when watching the "news" while Brian Ross is on vacation and we only get The Californian's Robert Price on Saturdays. I think it would help out a lot of people if there were some lie detector tests being given by independent parties to the accused. The accusers as well, but you never hear a word about them – are they that unreliable? I guess waterboarding is out of the question? Geesh, what's an uninformed citizen to do?
