Hmmm – do you smell a rat? There could be more to that story than made the national news. What exactly is the truth here on this story? Once again we’re reminded that “news,” even if it appears in major newspapers, journals and news networks, could be, quite simply, “glorified gossip.” Perhaps the moral of the story should more appropriately be:
If you believe a house was torched by a rat,
Then what else might be pulled out of the hat?
Stranger things have been true,
Whether or not they involved glue,
But it could be that the lie was just fat!
