New Zealand

Comment: Probably a minor quibble, but the article Snap Trapped
(http://www.snopes.com/autos/law/snaptrap.asp) includes the following
sentence:

> New Zealand's drivers must like to put the pedal to the
> metal far more than their UK counterparts, because roughly
> 11% of its four million citizens receive speed camera
> tickets every year in contrast to just 2% of the sixty
> million people in the UK.

In terms of raw numbers, though, this translates to 440,000 speeders in
New Zealand, and 1,200,000 speeders in the UK - more than two and a half
times greater. That doesn't really suggest to me that New Zealanders like
to speed more. Certainly a greater proportion of them are getting tickets,
yes, but there's far fewer of them overall.

Comment: I would like to comment on an article you have on the Communist
Rules For Revolution. I attended Knox College from August 1973 through
June 1977. I found in their library on campus in a book called the
Humanist Manifesto II a copy of, "What Commies Said 56 Years Ago". I have
carried this in my Bible all these years. So this copy is roughly 38 years
old. It has all that is listed in this article on your page, except the
following is printed, "it was printed in the Bartlesville, Oklahoma,
Examiner-Enterprise." at the end it says," --Concrete (Wash.) Herald. This
is on now old paper and hand typed from a typewriter. I believe this to be
true. I find it hard to believe that something like this would surface 38
years plus and that what I have shown to numerous people all these years
is a hoax. Please reconsider your resources.

Comment: I was glad to find one of your articles was TRUE. I am getting
tired of looking at False for Everything!

I've never heard of a website called False for Everything. What's its URL?

Comment: I looked here to see if the letter from Ed Chenel, Australian police officer, regarding Australian gun buy back, was authentic. It looks like it is authentic. But whoever wrote the piece decided to cloud that with a lengthy sermon on misconstruing statistics, which, in itself, is misleading. Instead of just saying, "Yes, this is authentic," the writer wanted to obviously place his her her bias against gun ownership into the article. Please remove this "Part true and part false" from this article and just state that, "Yes, this is authentic."
