As Voltaire said, never believe anything until it has been officially 
denied.    (02)

On the other hand, it is very difficult to cover up embarrassing facts
for any length of time.  As Lincoln said, "You can fool some of the
people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but
you can not fool all of the people all of the time."    (03)

The WWW is now facilitating two kinds of trends:    (04)

  1. Enabling anybody who truly wants to find the evidence for or
     against something to do a systematic search to get it.    (05)

  2. Enabling conspiracy junkies to spin any kinds of theories
     they prefer out of thin air (or Rush Limbaugh's rear end,
     which is somewhat thicker air).    (06)

Both of these trends confirm Lincoln's point.    (07)
