Contagious popular nonsense

Lacking anything really worth blogging about today: here is something I had drafted, but thought a little too cynical to post, even for me.... Some wisdom worth taking to heart is in this article in Slate last month: The (ongoing) vitality of mythical numbers. It reminds me of an old Soviet proverb I was once taught:
В Правде нет известий, а в Известиях нет правды.
Note I thank the late Alistair Cooke for the title.
