Many people have written me about the craigslist post alleging that there was a mugging in the DC USA parking garage. This has turned out to be absolutely false. Ed. note: You see I learned from my previous rumor spreading mistake and waited for confirmation this time. But my question is – what is the motivation for spreading such a false damaging rumor like this? Who would do such a thing and why? Are these jealous proprietors from Virgina or some folks who are upset about losing business. For real, why would someone lie about crime in this area when crime is such a provocative topic? Is it just for the thrill of riling people up? Or is it something more nefarious?
