Thread Name: Skepticism and the Zither.
Subject: RE: Skepticism and the Zither.
Catspaw, I'm afraid I'll have to side with you against Joe Offer (and it sincerely pains me to do that, since he's obviously a better person than both of us...well, you, anyway) regarding the "magic bullet". He's using a specious arguement here. Comparing those who found the Warren Report laughable, with those who think some dire conspiracy killed their beautiful fragile princess, just ain't fair.

It's like saying that the folks who believe Elvis is alive are the same ones who think that James Earl Ray might just have had a leeeeetle help in the assasination of Martin Luther King.

There are some legitimate cover-ups (to prevent HUGE official embarassment) and some invented fantasies 'cause folks can't stand to think their dead heroes may have used drugs...or hired drunken chauffers.

OK, I'm finished. You can come back into the room now Joe. I'd love to have a "wax" job with you...and I promise I'll try to make better records.
