“I’m the only damn daddy you got! I’m the damn paterfamilias!” protested Everett.
“Yeah,” snapped his oldest daughter, “but you ain’t bona fide!”
Bona fide. You gotta be bona fide.
In this day of photoshopping, in this age of copying and pasting, and in this time of pirating and bootlegging, it is far too easy for facts to be forged and faked and far too simple for the truth to be twisted and tweaked. Therefore, it is more and more important to be honest and bona fide.
We at the Emmett Lee Dickinson Museum (above the coin-op Laundromat on Dickinson Boulevard in Wahserst, PA) pride ourselves in our in-depth research and our painstaking process of verification of the facts. We post nothing on our site unless we are more than 100% sure that what we post is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Today, we are beyond thrilled that our exhaustive and comprehensive work to ensure that we post nothing short of truth and accuracy on our site is now honored by the highest award bestowed on any online site by the American Library Association, the ALA Seal of Correctitude & Bona Fide Authenticity.
We thank the ALA for this noteworthy and significant award, and we will post it in a prominent spot on our site. This seal will offer tangible proof that we are truthful, that we are correct, and that we are authentic. Most importantly, though, it shows that we are bona fide!
