Yeah, I love Snopes...Great site......But honestly, doesn't that sound like the same kind of invented for the occasion bullshit?
We ran a thread awhile back about what I don't recall and it debunked the common belief held and we were all amazed and excited. Then someone else came along and debunked the debunker. It's the problem in all historical research. When I try to separate the chaff from the grain, I sometimes tend to believe that it's all chaff.
