Stories that list out the top (insert random number here) myths about security seem to come out every other week or so. However, this latest one from Information Week is somewhat amusing in that it's basically a list of items saying you're not nearly as secure as you think you are, but then the last point basically says: except if you're on a wireless network. Apparently, the idea that wireless networks are insecure has been so drilled into so many minds that many people ignore the fact that you can be pretty secure on a wireless network if you know what you're doing.
