Hmmm...

Okay. I've been getting this email a LOT lately and I'd be interested in knowing what is the truth and what is fiction. I've already been to snopes.com and truthorfiction.com to find out, but neither one of them offered any insight.

Now, I know that some of this stuff is very true, but I figure that a bulk of it is false, exaggerated, or only partially true. If anyone could direct me towards a website or some resource like that, I would greatly appreciate it.

And two more questions - what do you think of this? And President Bush as a president overall?
