By way of explantion.

For the first time since I have been writing this blog I got snookered by something I found on the internet. I found it from three separate sources that I knew to have been legitimate in the past. What I read seemed very strange to me but yet it also seemed that it might be true. Feeling as I did, I included certain disclaimers that I hoped would show that I wasn’t convinced of what I had included. Sure enough, what I posted turned out to be a satire from The Onion. I got had. I found myself apologizing for my error and removing the offending insertion. I made a mistake. It wasn’t intentional but it was a mistake. My how lies have wings. There are five full pages in Google tracking the article. There's a sad irony in that.

I’m glad it happened because I’m a lot more careful now. The truth is damning enough without adding to it. I am gratified by the understanding I received and very appreciative to those of you who caught it and let me know.

I don't intend for it to happen again but if you ever see something here that you know is certifiably wrong then please let me know. I am honored that so many of you read this blog and I know you expect me to give my very best in being as honest and comprehensive as I can. You have a right to that. Together we can make our way and, god willing, get past the traps set for the unwary.

Thank you for your continuous support. I do not often engage in the comments section but I always answer my emails.
