Rumors kill a person's reputation. Most rumors are of the negative variety... a good rumor never survives. In the valley of rumors, it's more like survival of the sickest, to quote a Saliva song. I feel that rumors suck the life out of the person they're about... they can cause suicide and lashing out, both things that are not warranted, at least by this society. In Emerson's society, I'm sure they'd be okay. The best thing to do about a rumor is to prove it untrue as best as you can... just stick by yourself and stick to your guns.
