Conmen, tricksters, charlatans, impostors, and down right liars seeking wealth, 15 minutes of fame, or the alleviation of blam rely upon the maxim that "there's a sucker born every minute." A tribe of Stone Age people is discovered in the Philippines, animals in the Central Park Zoo have escaped and are attacking New Yorkers, and P.T. Barnum displays the amazing Feejee Mermaid. History is filled with examples of the media, governments, and churches falling for as well as employing deceit.
