Training Our Children to be Urban Legend Detectors

I think that’s an important skill to learn and teach. As everything from 9/11 trutherism, to Trig Trutherism, to Birthers, to people getting snookered by Onion articles about J.K. Rowling being a witch, to my own occasional snookering by spoof sites, to stunning exercises in discernment-free cluelessness throughout the blogosphere (Pope Francis is a Mason who is going to destroy the Church and Vladimir Putin is a latter-day Constantine and heroic saint!) the ability to discern fact from fiction is a vital and disappearing skill. Check thou it out!
