NewAge: The Evil Boot That Is Determined To Be Smashing On Our Human Faces Forever

"So here’s where we are in terms of public discussion about policy today: a tabloid paper can produce a dramatic and scientifically untrue claim, trumpet that claim and have it endorsed by two scientific societies, who know, or at least should know, that it is false, while the rest of the press, along with the government, look on either with approval or in silence."

"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes."

-- Mark Twain
