Series: Fake News
Years ago, I ran across a story of a man who was traveling. He was a very experienced traveler. He was driving in his pickup truck, and he was driving in an area that wasn't very familiar to him, but it didn't bother him at all. He was just tooling along. Everything was going well. And as he drove, he came to a fork in the road. And he knew he wanted to go to the right because that was the direction where he needed to be, but there was a sign there on the right that said, ''Road Closed.'' And it had a detour sign to the left. You need to go this way because this road is closed! And he thought, Well, I don't want to go all the way around there. That's not going to be good.
