Comment: Just wanted to let yall know the article you did about the new
u.s. coin dollars was inaccurate. In God we trust is on the coin it's on
the edge going around the coin. I just thought you should know so people
wouldn't get the wrong information!!

Comment: i have a question..why would they close the case in 2000..did
they do rape tests,were there signs of struggle was there dna under their
fingernails..did they look for finger prints..footprints..did they use the
email from ther killer put put it in the computers to see if they could
get the personal information..did theyuse local connection to connect the
killer with the sister...did they look for car tracks...did they find a
weapon....anything did people in the town see some one stocking the young
girl..who all had the girls email was it a afamily member a relative a
friend....could it have been one of her parents...uncle or aunt...did you
check background information...i ask all these questions because you can
reopen this case using the new technology to investigate these
things...even though finger prints and etc may be gone use the things you
picked up look hard and maybe you can get this case solved..

Because the Plainfield PD has a seven-year limit for unsolved homicide cases involving fictional characters.

Comment: Hello,

i was emailed the story about Susan McKinley's "breast rash", it says on
your page that STATUS is false, so that means the story is, right?

Comment: I have had numerous messages stating that the new (2007)
re-designed can for Pepsi has omitted the phrase "Under God".
In viewing the article on Snopes, the denial by your company seemingly was
two years old.

IS or IS NOT the phrase eliminated on the current can design?

I am a Pepsi consumer. However, if the phrase proves to be omitted on the
new can design, I will discontinue purchasing your product.

I think you need a new category. "Threats to stop buying things that we didn't sell anyway"

The last time I tried Snopesi, it left an aftertaste in my mouth for weeks.

Apparently we can keep selling Chef Boyardee products forever, no matter how badly we make them. They're planetastic!

Comment: Re: The Dangers of Bread

Why do you rate it as false, when all of the items are true?

"Studies link...." or "It has been proposed...."?

It seems to me that the whole point is that those things ARE true, and
comparable to claims made about other things, like guns.

Comment: I must be missing something about your claim that the Reagan
diary entry regarding George W. Bush is "tongue in cheek." I can
understand the reference to Kinsey may be that, but, in fact, Reagan did
say those things about GWB, didn't he?

Comment: If the Reagan Diary entry of May 17, 1986 regarding his opinion
of George W Bush is false, why not prove it by stating simply that no such
entry was made? Instead you try to use the columnist Kinsley to refute the
quote..instead he deals only with the misuse of his name on several other
dates.

So, is it really false?
