This is why libraries have fiction and non-fiction sections...

  I have no problem believing what is correct and true and substantianted.
  When incorrect mouth-to-mouth anecdotes are reported as truth, I object. 
  I researched and wrote stories about it. I interviewed executives of the
  involved companies. Etc., etc. I was only offering that if anyone had any
  factual evidence that they should provide it. (One of the first rules of
  reporting is don't ask the question unless you know the answer...)
  I realize you desperately want to believe otherwise because it validates
  your stance. But t'aint so...
