I am just playing devils advocate in this. I was sent an article several months 
ago about Snopes not really checking their facts. Maybe we should check more 
than one resource before we take it as gospel. Here are a couple of articles I 
found when I googled "who owns Snopes"

Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil. 
 The Light at the End of the Tunnel has been turned off. 
 We apologize for the inconvenience.

Life is way to short to take serious.

I am curious about what makes snopes such a reliable source? Does anyone know
how the status of true or false is determined? Is it like Wikipedia where any
Tom, Dick or Harry can post information?
