K/C you beat me to it, I was thinking the very same thing as there has been nothing on the news and that would be headlines if it were true. Personally I think with all that has been happening it is a very sick hoax too.

I knew there was something suspicious about it. Poor Maria she didn't know and got all exited about it. I sent that link to her and I didn't forward it to anyone.

If you ever want to know if one of those "pass this along to everyone in your address book" emails is a hoax or not, just go to Snopes and type in a couple keywords in to the box in the green area at the top and you can get the facts. I use it all the time and it's great. I like that it even tells how a hoax got started, all its iterations, etc.
