    Once again, the rumor mill runs rampant and urban legends are presented as fact. Check out the following regarding Target:

    Life was more interesting before snopes

    You could really get worked up and angry about something.

    Now you have to check and see if it is true or not.

    I know exactly what you mean!

    But what's funny is how many of the old chain letters have made the transition to email now. Just a few tweaks and they're off and running again. And even with Snopes and other urban legend sites, people continue to reprise the same tired old rumors. They believe what they want to believe, and don't worry about checking the facts. Maybe it's just laziness.

    Just for clarity, the source on this story IS a legit news organization.

    I don't do the Target thing either...the redneck in me is partial to WalMart.

    The manager making a press statement and denying the incident without even talking to his assistant manager proves that his attitude of calling the Marines version of the story incorrect is total bull kaka. Just another reason I'll not spend my money at Target.
