We hate to say we told you so


But, yeah, we told you so.

There's a great story on false confessions over at Slate, by the way, which includes the following tidbit:

Several hundred people claimed to have abducted the Lindbergh baby, for example, and more than 30 confessed to the Hollywood "Black Dahlia" murder in the 1940s.

If you haven't heard of the Black Dahlia, you will soon: It's about to be a movie starring Hilary Swank, Scarlett Johanssen, Aaron Eckhart, and Josh Hartnett.
