    If it's shown on TV, it must be true. Why else would people flock to this sort of thing.

    I'm a great believer in a free press and caveat emptor, but the sheer volume of snake oil being sold on today is absurd. Where are the censors when they are really needed?

    Unfortunately many people evidently didn't learn anything from the lesson of the first time LifeLock got fined for not being truthful about their service.

    That is a hefty chunk of change, we will see if they shrug that off.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.
