Fact Or Crap......

Recommended Posts

Crap...Peter Wolf was once maried to Faye Dunaway. It was not his only brush with Hollywood royalty. At Boston's School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Wolf's roomate was David Lynch, later the director of Blue Velvet and the television show Twin Peaks. However, Lynch found Wolf "strange" and kicked him out. It was Lynch who, years later, had a highly publicized affair with Isabella Rossellini, the daughter of Ingrid Bergman and Italian director Roberto Rossellini.

Fact or Crap: In Chief Seattle's famous 1854 speech advocating ecological responsibility, he said, "I have seen five million rotting buffaloes on the prarie, left by the white man who shot them from a passing train."

Crap...For decades, the 1854 speech that Cheif Seattle supposedly delivered to Governor Isaac Stevens, who was trying to buy Puget Sound, has been a rallying cry for environmentalists everywhere. Seattle supposedly said, "We are part of the earth, and it is part of us." The problem is, the aging cheif spoke no English, and no one present spoke Duwamish, his native tongue. And since Seattle never left Puget Sound, he had never seen a buffalo, much less a train. German historian Rudolf Kaiser tracked down the source of the bogus speech to a screenwriter named Ted Perry who "rewrote" it for a television documentary.

Fact or Crap: The first U.S. train robbery, on October 6, 1866, was pulled off by the James gang.

Crap....It was a gang of brothers, but not Frank and Jesse James. It was Frank, John, Simon, Clinton, and William Reno who did the deed in Seymour, Indiana, making off with $10,000. Soon after, Allan Pinkerton arrested John and put him behind bars for 40 years, but Frank and the rest of the brothers continued robbing trains and banks. Pinkerton and his men eventually tracked down and imprisoned the Renos, but a mob of 56 men, incensed by the Renos' crimes, broke into Indiana's New Albany jail on December 12, 1868, and hung the men from the rafters.

Fact or Crap: Schizophrenia costs U.S. taxpayers $4 billion a year.
