    People flat-out lie about military and sports accomplishments more than anything else. Often for no explicable reason.

    Be careful out there!

    This rag has no credibility. Their last edition was called "Being White in Philly." The story was filled in anonymous sources and did not encompass the entire city. As for the latest debacle, Anthony Gargano, a talking head who formerly worked at the New York Post, should know better than to pawn off crap like this.
