PSA: URBAN LEGENDS
[Dude, I am so doing everything but my immediate assignment right now. But I felt I had to do this. ]
America, the NEA is not canceling funding for PBS and Sesame Street. This is an issue from 1996.
Penny Brown is NOT missing.

And here's why internet petitions are a waste of your time.
Please, do us all a favor. Before you forward a petition, an email that claims to be able to "track" results, or anything else, please check Snopes' Urban Legends page. They have a search engine that's very good, and if you don't find a rumor on their site, ask them to investigate it.
But above all, I beg of you, do not forward things to all of your friends and acquaintances until you determine that the email is factual.
