Of all the people who have ever played high school football in our area, I think what T. J. Moe did his senior year stacks up against anybody—anybody. Read closely: At Fort Zumwalt West in 2008, he scored 61 touchdowns. That is not a career, that is a single season. Only Roger Maris has had a more impressive 61. Moe threw for 2,557 yards, and he ran for 2,029 yards. Throw in a perfect grade point average and a pretty good basketball career, and you have a pretty nice high-school experience.

Who can you trust? Where can you get accurate information? There are a lot of misinformation and falsehoods online. Many people, however passionate, are just plain uneducated—these are the ones who post based on emotion and not on facts. Others have political, religious or other agendas that they want to promote with little or no regard for the truth. Another group can be considered the scam artists, who only have one purpose: to take your money.

In addition, there are honest misunderstandings, in which people just don’t fact-check before they post.
