Some Surprising Oversights by Snopes

I just heard today about an urban legend which I couldn't find on Snopes.com -- rather surprisingly, since it turns out it' s nearly fifty years old, including twenty online. While I was at it, I also filled them in on another rumor, over a decade old, that I encountered a couple years ago. Below are links to articles about both.

"Nelson Mandela's first memo to Thomas Friedman": http://www.electronicintifadad.net/content/mandelas-first-memo-thomas-friedman/4826
