    those 'crazy conspiracy theorists' myself, both with regard to JFK and to 9-11. Then I read Vincent Bugliosi's Reclaiming History and am now firmly convinced Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone to assassinate President Kennedy.

    Bugliosi's book is that magisterial. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Do set aside some time to read it, though, as it is quite lengthy.

    I still retain some doubts about the official narrative re 9-11, especially Bush's remark to his CIA briefer on August 8 that the briefer had covered his ass. Just so flippant and insouciant and, of course, Bush was not compelled to answer questions under oath, in public and alone before the 9-11 Commission. Nor was Cheney.

    On a lighter note, if such is permitted, I would point out that the official narrative of 9-11 is itself a conspiracy theory, since it posits a conspiracy of the 19 hijackers and their various supporting elements. I'm reminded of that quip (attributed IIRC to Paul Thompson): "You can cal me a 'conspiracy theorist' if I can call you a 'coincidence theorist.' :)
