9/11 conspiracy?

I wrote a column the other day ridiculing those who think the U.S. government was involved in the Sept. 11 attacks. I said conspiracy theories are nice, but that this one is an insult to the victims.

I got a number of responses from, shall I say, the conspiracy side of the house. One was priceless. I got a letter from a fellow from Michigan laying out reasons why he thought the U.S. government was involved. It wasn’t a bad letter, meaning that it was coherent and well-written.

So I asked him if we could run it in the paper.

No way, he said. You see, he didn’t trust us to run the letter properly. Hmm … I must be part of the conspiracy.

    If he sent it to you, why can’t you publish it? Being a naturally curious person, I’m dying to see it now!!!!

    Fred – Any chance you can get someone to fix your ED problems? 😉 The Blog is becoming a bit of a shambles.

    Well, I do recall others commenting in the past that their letters were either truncated or edited, so perhaps the prospective letter writer has a valid concern. It doesn’t make you a conspirator, just an editor.

    And regarding the flaccid droopiness of your blog lately….please ask someone to fix it….maybe Christie’s website experts are available to help? The addition of a a simple CAPTCHA would stop most of the spam, just make sure it’s 508 compliant.

    There are a lot of unanswered questions surrounding 9/11. I’d be interested in reading what the Michigan guy has to say. Can you paraphrase it or net out the main points?

  6. P says:

    Could you enumerate your questions. I’d be happy to provide the answers.

    As for the “Truther” from Michigan, please spare us more of the Grass Knoll stuff.
