The Pocket Guide to BS Prevention. A great process to vet stories when Snopes fails to provide any info. “Sharing a piece of news with 900 Facebook friends is not talking. It’s publishing. And publishing BS is extremely destructive: It makes it harder for the rest of us to distinguish between bogus news and something real, awful, and urgent.”
This afternoon,1 we decided to visit the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. On the way, we hit some heavy rain, but the weather was nice when we arrived. We had most of the park to ourselves. When the rain finally arrived at the garden (with a little sleet and hail mixed in for variety) we decided it was time to leave.
