At the cafe. Overhearing a conversation where these two prima face intelligent men are discussing the debate over whether the 9/11/2001 WTC attacks were an inside job, and they’re going on and on about it. Sounds to me like they’re both leaning toward that conclusion, even in the face of all the word-of-mouth evidence against it they’re mentioning. I should be astounded, but I’m not. This is a cafe, after all. I expect to hear anything here. Echo chamber.
What’s more interesting to note is the thought that the WTC attacks happened almost 12 years ago. Twelve. That’s almost a generation ago. And people are still debating it. I suppose it’s the JFK assassination or the Apollo moon landing of our age. In the shadow of overwhelming evidence, some of the population will deny it with their own brand of crazy.
