"Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly." – G. K. Chesterton

It was a hoax.

Shame on Rolling Stone for publishing such slander.  Shame on Sabrina Rubin Erdely for writing it.  I hope that both face several large libel lawsuits as a result.  Is it too much to hope that Rolling Stone will go bankrupt and cease publication as a result?

Shame on other media sources that were fooled by this and spread the story uncritically.  Shame on those at UVA and elsewhere who vandalized the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house and threatened those who were falsely accused.

Congratulations are owed to those with the courage to expose the truth, particularly Richard Bradley and Robby Soave.
