21. All well and good, but who is keeping Snopes honest?
No one, I say. I've seen more errors on Snopes lately than I have on Wikipedia!

Snopes is still saying that Gore's house is his private house only, and is using a ton of energy based on a dollar amount... instead of noting that his house is also his office, and the dollar figure is higher for the energy because green energy is more expensive.
