* Guest Columnist Ron Richo responds to today's NYT article, The Umbrella Man

  (link to NYT article) 

“Conspiracy theories aren't real, the government just wants you to think they are so they can steal your thoughts when you aren't looking.” Oscar Wilde.

I don't know what to say about the Kennedy Assassination. It seems like ancient history now. I bought into all the conspiracy theorists’ theories until one day I realized they were doing the same thing they accused the Warren Commission of doing and making a profit from it as well.

Kennedy wasn't killed by a lone gunman, the moon landing never happened, Marilyn was murdered, Elvis is still alive, AIDS is a government plot, and 9/11 was an inside job. And so on.  It begins to say more about us than anything else. We believe in nothing. Mom, the flag, apple pie, the Church and your Alma Mater are all you can trust......OOPS! We are a nation of children and we just found out there's no Santa Claus.  Disillusioned!
