Excerpt of Post to the Facebook Group:

As to the tabloid article written by that rag, we were blown away by its 98% inaccuracies. (Again please see link on other, more accurate article below this message.) We have no idea where they dreamed up their journalistic angle; but that’s what NY tabloids do – they grovel to sell papers and “push” salacious subway reading (& scandalous online fodder) — oh well, gotta love ’em).

Interesting but sad story…

Here’s the better article about the story.
